Similac Formula Recalled by Abbott Due to Defective Bottle Caps

Because bottle caps may not seal correctly, Abbott is recalling Similac baby formula produced at a factory in Columbus, Ohio. This action is unrelated to an earlier recall of formula from a plant in Sturgis, Michigan.

The company stated in a recent news release that if damaged goods are consumed, intestinal symptoms like diarrhoea and vomiting may develop. “These items are being recalled due to the possibility of deterioration due to a tiny percentage of bottles (less than 1%) in the recalled batches having bottle tops that may not have completely sealed,” the company stated.

According to a news release from the company, the recalled ready-to-use formula is available in 2-fluid-ounce bottles under the names Similac Pro-Total Comfort, Similac 360 Total Care, Similac 360 Total Care Sensitive, Similac Special Care 24, Similac Stage 1, Similac NeoSure, Similac Water (Sterilized), and Pedialyte Electrolyte Solution.

In order to determine whether a bottle of Abbott formula they own is included in the recall, users should check the lot number on the container and go to similacrecall.com.

Earlier this year, Sturgis, Michigan-based Abbott baby formula was recalled due to possible contamination. As a result of the corporation closing down that production, there was such a severe shortage of infant formula that the Biden administration had to have it flown into the country using military aircraft. In August, the factory restarted.

The current recall, according to Abbott, “amounts to less than one day’s worth of the total number of ounces of infant formula fed in the U.S. and is not expected to have an impact on the entire U.S. infant formula supply.”

According to Abbott, Puerto Rico as well as hospitals, doctors’ offices, wholesalers, and retailers in the United States received the recalled goods. Canada, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Panama, and various Caribbean countries received a small quantity of the merchandise.
