Abbott recalls special infant formula
Placeholder Image

Abbott has voluntarily recalled two lots of Calcilo XD® Low-Calcium/Vitamin D-Free Infant Formula with Iron powder in 14.1-ounce cans (400g). Only 14.1-ounce (400g) cans are involved in this action.

Calcilo XD is a low-calcium and vitamin D-free infant formula that is specifically designed for the nutrition support of infants and children with hypercalcemia (high calcium in blood). It is only available by special order.

Abbott recalled the two lots of product because small amounts of air may have entered the can, resulting in product oxidation. A common sign of oxidation is an off aroma.

Consumption of highly oxidized foods can cause gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Parents with questions or concerns should contact a health care professional.

The recall is limited to Calcilo XD in 14.1-ounce (400g) cans, with stock code number 00378 and with lot numbers 39973RB or 47239RB6 printed on the bottom of the cans.

The two lots were distributed in the U.S., Canada, Malaysia, Korea and Bahrain, between June 6, 2006 and April 17, 2008.

Consumers who purchased the product from either of the two lots should contact Abbott Nutrition at 1-800-638-6493.
