More than 23,000 containers of Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula only sold at Walmart are being recalled. The fear is that the formula may contain metal.
The milk-based powder, fortified with iron was recalled voluntarily by makers Perrigo due to the “potential presence of metal foreign matter” in 23,388 containers of the formula.
In a statement, Perrigo says, “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.”
The recall involves a single lot of the 35-ounce, 992-gram containers of the milk-based formula powder with iron. The containers have the lot code C26EVFV and USE BY date February 26, 2021.
Perrigo says, “Consumers should stop using the formula and go to Walmart for a refund.”
