For a list of products and lot numbers included in the recall, visit or call 1-800-986-8540.

According to Abbott, “These products are being recalled because a small percentage of bottles (less than 1%) in the recalled lots have bottle caps that may not have sealed completely, which could result in spoilage.” The brands included in this recall are:

The Department has notified current WIC participants who may have been issued a recalled product to provide them with alternative options. 

In addition to these formula products, the following product has also been recalled:

 •            Pedialyte® Electrolyte Solution

 According to Abbott, this recall should not impact overall formula supply. Floridians who use these products should visit Abbott’s website to view a list of impacted products or use the lot number checker online. It is important to verify the lot number on the bottom or the side of the bottle, as not all products are included in the recall.
