RECALL NOTICE: Abbott brand Calcilo XD Powder recalled due to rancidity and off-colour

Hi Everyone,

This is a recall item for a non-Costco product, but since I know there are a lot of mom’s on this blog, I wanted to make sure I spread the word.  I don’t want any little ones getting sick.  Apparently, there have already been some reported illness regarding this product.  The once concerning thing about this recall is that it states:

“The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.”

So please inspect your formula (any brand) before you give it to your little ones.  The recall affects the following provinces: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan.
