A Washington-based company, Healthwest Minerals Inc., operating as Mt. Capra Products, has issued a recall for its goat milk product, urging consumers to cease its use as baby formula immediately. This recall follows guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to concerns regarding inadequate nutrition when used as infant formula.

Story Overview:

  • Healthwest Minerals Inc., trading as Mt. Capra Products, has recalled 1,506 boxes of the Goat Milk Formula Recipe Kit, prompted by FDA advice, citing insufficient nutrition for infants and inadequate storage instructions.
  • The product, sold between May 1, 2023, and May 1, 2024, may lead to iron deficiency anaemia and feeding intolerance if used without additional iron supplementation.
  • The FDA’s discovery of anaemia in one infant, attributed to a deficient formulation, spurred the recall.

Prioritising consumer safety, Mt. Capra emphasises the recall’s importance and urges affected individuals to dispose of or return the product.
