RECALL NOTICE – President’s Choice Sensitive to lactose milk-based powdered infant formula

Hi Everyone,

The good news is that it looks like after some tests were done that the recall warning on President’s Choice lower iron milk has been rescinded.  Unfortunately, after more tests were done the President’s Choice Sensitive to lactose milk-based powdered infant formula has now been recalled.  I think that this recall would affect even more people as this product is probably much more popular.  It is not all batches – so I have included the affected batch numbers down below.  Thanks to Bonnie Whitford for letting me know !  

Even this is not a Costco recall, I’m posting this recall because I want to make sure that as many people know about this recall and I don’t want any little ones to get sick.

What you should do

If you think you or a family member became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.

Check to see if you have the recalled product in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with Cronobacter may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause illness. Although Cronobacter is not commonly linked to human illness, in rare cases it can cause serious or fatal infections. Cronobacter can cause rare bloodstream and central nervous system infections and has been associated with severe intestinal infection (necrotizing enterocolitis) and blood poisoning (sepsis), especially in newborns.
