Wal-Mart and Price Chopper recall baby formula
(WKTV) - Some local stores are recalling baby formula due to the possibility that bacteria contaminated the product.
Price Chopper Supermarkets is issuing a voluntary recall on Enfamil 12.5OZ Newborn formula (UPC 30087510051) manufactured by Mead Johnson.
This product is being recalled due to published reports about the possible presence of the bacterium Cronobacter, which may be connected to the death of an infant in the state of Missouri.
Earlier this week, WalMart pulled the formula from its shelves after the Missouri newborn died from a rare infection.
Officials are awaiting test results from more than 3,000 stores across the nation.
The FDA is testing the product, but at this time has not found reason to mandate a recall. With an abundance of precaution, Price Chopper has pulled the product from its shelves and will refrain from selling it until the FDA issues a determination confirming that it is safe for consumption. The Newborn formula in question was sold in Price Chopper stores between November 2 and December 22.
Customers can return the product to their local Price Chopper for a full refund. For more information, visit the pricechopper.com website or call Price Chopper at 1-800-666-7667, option 3.
