Contrary to some media reports, the FDA’s most recent recommendation was NOT a product recall.
SimplyThick is advising customers and medical professionals to review FDA's latest advisory that infants of any age may face an increased risk of developing life-threatening conditions if fed SimplyThick®. FDA recommends that “anyone involved in the care of a baby be aware of potential risk before deciding whether to feed SimplyThick® to infants of any age”. View the FDA archives for press release.
If you are currently giving SimplyThick® to your infant, please read the latest FDA advisory and consult your child’s health care professional. FDA reports it is aware of infants that ranged from about 24 to 48 weeks post-menstrual age that have become sick. FDA continues to recommend that SimplyThick® brand thickener not be used with or given to babies who were born before 37 weeks.
We hope that this does not cause any inconvenience to medical professionals or our customers but, as you can understand, SimplyThick wants to proceed with all due caution. If you would like additional information, please call 800-205-7115 or send e-mail to [email protected].
