According to an online news report posted on tmj4.com, parents of newborns are frantically searching for baby formula after Abbott Nutrition’s baby formula recall. The recall affects Abbott Nutrition’s Similac, Alimentum, and EleCare baby formulas. The recall was initiated after reported cases of Cronobacter sakazakiia and salmonella infections. The nationwide baby formula recall started on February 17, 2022.
Cronobacter sakazakiia can cause severe infections in the blood, leading to swelling in the spinal lining and brain.
To find out if your infant baby formula is part of the recall, locate the “lot number.” The lot number is a seven- to nine-digit number found on the bottom of the baby formula’s container. If the first two numbers of the lot number are 22 to 37, or the lot number contains K8, SH, or Z2, and the date of expiration is 4-1-2022 or later, you likely have a recalled baby formula. If you want to verify the lot number, visit SimilacRecall.com and then click on “Check Lot Number” or call the phone number listed on SimilacRecall.com.
If you suspect that your baby formula is part of the recall, do not use the formula. Customers with a recalled baby formula may also exchange the formula or receive a refund by returning the formula at the store of purchase.
If your baby is exhibiting the following symptoms, contact your medical provider as soon as possible: fever, crying, poor feeding, and low energy.
