    NOTE TO READERS: This advisory is an FDA notice that is being distributed via CDC’s Health Alert Network.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is recommending that parents, caregivers, and health care providers should not feed the thickening product called SimplyThick to infants born before 37 weeks gestation because it may cause necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a life threatening condition characterized by inflammation and death of intestinal tissue.
