Abbott Nutrition of Columbus, Ohio, has announced a voluntary
worldwide recall of two lots of Calcilo XD® Low-Calcium/Vitamin D-Free
Infant Formula with Iron.
Abbott is recalling the product because small amounts of air may have entered the can, resulting in product oxidation. A common sign of oxidation is a foul aroma.
When consumed, highly oxidized foods can cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
This particular infant formula is specifically designed for infants and
children with hypocalcaemia, or high calcium in the blood, and is
available only by special order.
The recall is limited to product in 14.1-ounce cans with stock code
number 00378 and lot numbers 39973RB or 47239RB6 that are printed on the bottom of the cans.
The two lots were distributed in the United States, Canada, Malaysia,
Korea and Bahrain, between 06/06/06 and 04/17/08. Consumers who
purchased the infant formula from either of the two lots mentioned above should contact Abbott at 1-800-638-6493.
