2022 formula recall: FDA warns consumers not to use certain Similac, Alimentum and EleCare


Abbott Nutrition is voluntarily recalling three types of infant formula after four babies fell ill with bacterial infections after consuming the products.

The recall, announced Thursday, affects certain lots of Similac, Alimentum and EleCare formulas that were manufactured at an Abbott plant in Sturgis, Michigan.

The Food and Drug Administration has warned consumers not to use or purchase formula or certain powdered infant formulas produced at the facility.

“The FDA is investigating complaints about four childhood illnesses in three states,” the agency said in a statement Thursday. “The four cases linked to these complaints were hospitalized and Cronobacter may have contributed to a death in one case.”
