Baby formula powder sold at Walmart recalled because it may contain metal

Perrigo Company is issuing a voluntary nationwide recall of one lot of 35-ounce, 992-gram containers of Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron sold exclusively at Walmart.

According to a press release, the company is voluntarily recalling 23,388 containers of the product because of the “potential presence of metal foreign matter.”

No adverse events have been reported to date, and the recall is being initiated out of an abundance of caution stemming from a consumer report. No other products or retailers are affected by this recall.

Consumers who may have purchased the product should look for Lot Code C26EVFV with a “use by” date of February 26, 2021, which can be found on the bottom of the package. Any consumers who purchased the product should discontinue use and can visit any Walmart store for a refund.
