Abbott – Recall
Foster’s Supermarket would like to announce that
Abbott is initiating a proactive, voluntary recall of powder
formulas, including Similac, Alimentum and EleCare manufactured in Sturgis, Mich., one of the company’s manufacturing facilities. The recall does not include any metabolic deficiency nutrition formulas.
Abbott is voluntarily recalling these products after four consumer complaints related to Cronobacter sakazakii or Salmonella Newport in infants who had consumed powder infant formula manufactured in this facility.
Foster’s Supermarket does carry Abbott products and has been affected by this recall. All affected products have been removed from our shelves.
The FDA is advising consumers not to use recalled Similac, Alimentum, or EleCare powdered infant formulas. Recalled products can be identified by the 7 to 9 digit code and expiration date on the bottom of the package. Products are included in the recall if they have all three items below:
- the first two digits of the code are 22 through 37 and
- the code on the container contains K8, SH, or Z2, and
- the expiration date is 4-1-2022 (APR 2022) or later.
Additional recall information is available on the FDA website. Parents can also enter their product lot code on the company’s website to check if it is part of the recall.
Foster’s is affected by this recall.
