The Perrigo Company has issued a voluntary nationwide recall of 23,388 35-ounce, 992-gram containers of Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron. The formula, sold only at Walmart, is being recalled because of the potential presence of metal foreign matter in a single lot of the product (C26EVFV).
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the nationwide recall on Friday, explaining that the company is recalling 23,388 of its 35 oz. containers of Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron because of “the potential presence of metal foreign matter.”
The affected products will have a Lot Code of C26EVFV and a “use by” date of February 26, 2021, on the bottom of the package.
The FDA explained that there were no reports of injury or illness related to the baby formula. Instead, the recall was issued out of caution following a consumer report.
On Walmart’s website, the formula is billed as “complete nutrition” for a baby’s first year and sells for $19.98.
“This formula is quick and easy to make. All you have to do is add water and shake. Feed your kid with confidence by using Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula,” the product description says.
