The FDA issued a recall notice for infant formula by Abbott Laboratories who “out of an abundance of caution,” has “voluntarily recalled a single lot of Calcilo XD® powder cans” due to what the company calls “an inconsistency in aroma and color.”
The inconsistency recall affects “a small number of cans from this specific batch” of the product in the United States and Canada in the 13.2oz (375g) with lot number 79696K80.
The recall notice for this lot of products says no other lots of Calcilo XD, or any other Abbott products are affected. Abbot assures consumers their “products can continue to be used with confidence.”
Consumers who purchased Calcilo XD® powder cans should cease using the product and contact Abbott Laboratories for instructions on how and where to return the product by calling 800-850-7677 in the United States and 855-733-4201 in Canada.
