Infant Formula Recalled Due To Potential Presence Of Metal In Powder

Jun 24, 2019, 7:24 AM

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The company that manufactures Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder With Iron is issuing a voluntary recall due to the potential of foreign metal in the product.

The nationwide recall applies to the 35-ounce, 992-gram containers of the product, which were sold exclusively at Walmart. The affected product has Lot Code C26EVFV and a “use by” date of Feb. 26, 2021. Both of these indicators can be found on the bottom of the package.

The potential presence of metal foreign matter occurred in single lot of the formula, and a total of 23,388 containers were affected, according to the FDA.

“No adverse events have been reported to date, and the recall is being initiated out of an abundance of caution stemming from a consumer report,” according to a statement from the FDA. “No other products or retailers are affected by this recall.”

Parents should discontinue using the formula immediately and return it to any Walmart for a full refund. Those with health-related questions or concerns are urged to contact their healthcare providers.

Anyone with questions about Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron can contact Perrigo Consumer Affairs at 866-629-6181.
