Florida Health Alert: Infant Formula Produced In Michigan May Cause Cronobacter Infection, Salmonella Symptoms

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release alerting consumers to avoid purchasing or using certain powdered infant formula products produced in Abbott Nutrition’s facility in Sturgis, Michigan.

This is an ongoing investigation, and Abbott has initiated a voluntary recall of the potentially affected product. The FDA’s full press release can be found here.

The FDA is advising consumers not to use Similac, Alimentum, or EleCare powdered infant formulas if:

  • The first two digits of the code are 22 through 37; and
  • The code on the container contains K8, SH, or Z2; and
  • The expiration date is 4-1-2022 (APR 2022) or later.

If your child is experiencing any Cronobacter infection symptoms or Salmonella symptoms, you should seek medical care for your child immediately.

Alternative Formula Use – Individuals should not use recalled infant formula and contact their health care provider for guidance on alternative infant formula use.

If you are a Florida Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program participant, do not use the recalled infant formula and do not discard or throw it out. To contact the Pasco WIC office, please call 1-877-942-2329.

Once the recall was announced, DOH-Pasco WIC’s staff attempted to contact all clients who may have had the affected formula and informed them about the situation along with providing guidance.

WIC Director, Jennifer Parker says “The staff is working very hard to provide replacement formula as quickly as possible. The agency currently does not have any unaffected formula in inventory and any formula that must be ordered will take several days to arrive. We thank you for your patience and understanding.”
