LittleOak infant formulas are being recalled because the company didn’t show that the formula is safe or get its ingredients reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the regulator said. The formula’s sales in the United States have been illegal, the FDA said, because the regulator wasn’t given the chance to evaluate the formula’s nutritional data, manufacturing information, ingredients or other information required before a new infant formula can be sold long term in the United States.

In addition, the preparation instructions on the containers are different than generally used for infant formula. This could cause caregivers to mix the formula improperly, the FDA said. Overly diluted formula can affect growth and development, while too much concentration can cause dehydration and kidney problems.

Parents and caregivers should not give LittleOak Infant Formula to babies, the FDA said. Those looking for other goat milk infant formula can refer to this list provided by the FDA.
