As a parent, you’ve probably wondered if your son or daughter has been sick since consuming recalled Similac Baby Formula. The product was recalled after the Food and Drug Administration found it to be contaminated with Cronobacter sakazakii. The recall applies to one lot of the product, and you should discard any remaining formula as soon as possible. You can check on your child’s formula by entering its lot code here.
You Can Also Choose To Switch To Another Brand Of The Same Formula
If your child has recently been sickened by the bacterial contamination, you should check the expiration date on the bottle. The formula can be found near the bottom of the container. If you have already opened the bottle, check the expiration date to see if there are any other warnings. Otherwise, you’ll be out of luck. A recall like this can affect thousands of babies in the U.S. and may be the worst time for you to give your child recalled formula.
If you’ve bought recalled Similac Baby Formula, you’ll want to stop using it immediately. You can also choose to switch to another brand of the same formula. Similac’s ready-to-feed liquid formula is not affected by the recall, but you can try another brand if you’re not sure.
