A children's nutritional product is now subject to a recall due to a manufacturing error.

Nature's One is recalling three lots of PediaSmart Dairy Vanilla complete nutrition beverage powder. The item may be sold with a 20 cc scoop instead of the intended 32 cc scoop. If used as directed, the smaller scoop results in only 60 percent of the labeled nutritional content being consumed per serving.

Unless this product is used as a sole source of nutrition, there should be no health risk from using the incorrect scoop.

The recalled product was sold in 12.7 ounce cans, with lot numbers located on the bottom. For a list of lot numbers, UPCs, and use-by dates included in the recall, see the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) release.

The recalled PediaSmart Dairy Vanilla was distributed between January 26, 2016 and June 1, 2016 and shipped to locations in the continental United States and Canada.

Not all the cans contain the smaller scoop. If you have any of the product potentially containing the smaller scoop, please look at the bottom of the scoop. If the scoop bears 32 cc, you have the correct item. If the scoop bears 20 cc, do not use it for measuring.

Consumers seeking a replacement, or with questions about this recall, can contact Nature's One by phone at (888) 227-7122 or by email at recallinfo@naturesone.zendesk.com.
