On February 27, 2012 Abbott Laboratories, Inc. “(Abbott”) announced it was recalling powder formulas, including Similac, Alimentum and EleCare manufactured in Sturgis, Michigan, one of the company’s manufacturing facilities. The recall does not include any metabolic deficiency nutrition formulas. Products made at this facility can be found across the U.S. and were likely exported to other countries as well. Canadian health officials have also issued a recall warning.
Abbott is recalling these products after four consumer complaints related to Cronobacter sakazakii or Salmonella Newport in infants who had consumed powder infant formula manufactured in this facility. The Company said its EleCare Baby Formula Recall investigation is ongoing. If you have questions contact an EleCare Recall Lawyer for free about an Elecare Lawsuit.

What Should I Do If I purchased Recalled Baby Formula?
The recalled baby formula products contain bacteria that, if ingested, can cause a serious, life-threatening infection in young children. Any family that has Abbott products in their home should dispose of them and find a safer alternative for their children, one that will not jeopardize their health and well-being. Although there are only four cases of infections, it is best to avoid the products entirely to ensure your child's safety.
What Are Cronobacter sakazakii and Salmonella Newport?
Cronobacter sakazakii is a bacteria commonly found in dry environments, like baby formula, and can cause stomach issues as well as urinary tract infections in people of all ages. However, when it’s ingested by a child two months or younger, it can result in more serious infections, like sepsis and meningitis. If your child exhibits any of the following symptoms after consuming a dry food product, you should seek medical treatment to ensure their safety:
What Should I Do if My Child Is Showing Symptoms?
If you notice that your child is exhibiting any of the symptoms mentioned above after consuming a powdered baby formula product, it is best to bring them to a trusted medical professional for a second opinion. The signs of a Cronobacter sakazakii or Salmonella Newport infection are very vague, and the behavior your child is showing could just be a coincidence rather than a severe diagnosis. However, you do not want to leave that up to chance, and by seeking medical attention sooner rather than later, you can protect your child from the consequences of an infection that has gone too far.
