Abbott is recalling three brands of baby formula after four infants became sick after consuming the products, the Food and Drug Administration said.
The FDA is urging consumers not to purchase or use certain Similac, Alimentum or EleCare powdered infant formulas produced at Abbott Nutrition’s Sturgis, Michigan, facility while it investigates four cases of Cronobacter sakazakii and salmonella Newport infections in Ohio, Texas and Minnesota.
The infant in each case was reported to have consumed powdered infant formula produced at the Michigan facility and was hospitalized, according to the FDA. The agency also noted that "Cronobacter may have contributed to a death in one case."
