CDC issues infant formula recall

Mothers using a certain type of infant formula should check what they are using because it may be affected by a new recall notice from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

It has been announced that three brands of powdered formula were recalled for possible Cronobracter contamination. 

There have been several complaints, according to the CDC, about sick infants who were fed powdered formula.  

The recalled powdered infant formula includes the brand names Similac, Alimentum, and EleCare:

They have the following product code: First two digits are 22 through 37, and the code on the container contains “K8,” “SH,” or “Z2”

Expiration date: 4-1-2022 (APR 2022) or later.

Those who find these specific formula containers are urged not to feed it to their infants, but instead either return it to the store where it was purchased for a refund, or simply throw it away.  

More information is available on the CDC website.
