Article: 56/908

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued advice after infant formula producer Abbott took the precautionary step of recalling various batches of Elecare Similac and Alimentum Similac powdered formula, because of the possible presence of Salmonella and Cronobacter sakazakii.

Both formula products are for special medical purposes and are ordinarily used under medical supervision. Abbott has contacted all stores and pharmacies supplying these products to inform them of the recall. Anyone who has purchased or been prescribed any of the products included in the recall should not feed it to their baby and should return it to the place they got it from.
