Baby Formula Cronobacter Sakazakiim & Salmonella Lawsuit Lawyers


March 09, 2022

WASHINGTON D.C. - According to an online news report published on wpri.com, U.S. health officials from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are warning parents not to feed their infants with three popular Abbott Nutrition powdered infant formulas. The recalled baby formulas were manufactured at the plant that was recently linked to unsafe bacterial contamination.

The FDA states that they are investigating four incident reports concerning infant hospitalization caused by consuming the contaminated formula. One infant tragically died. The FDA states that three of the cases involved Cronobacter sakazakiim and one case involves salmonella. Cronobacter sakazakiim can cause dangerous blood infections and complications.

Abbott Nutrition is of the largest infant formula manufacturers in the United States. This recall involves certain lots of Alimentum, Similac, Similac PM 60/40, and EleCare baby formulas with expirations of April 1, 2022, or later. According to Abbott Nutrition's recall announcement, the recalled baby formulas were distributed across the U.S. and overseas.

FDA investigators are performing inspections of Abbott Nutrition's plant in Sturgis, Michigan, after environmental specimens tested positive for Cronobacter bacteria. The FDA's inspectors also uncovered possible manufacturing issues and past company records that show the destruction of baby formula due to bacterial contamination.

On March 9, 2022, the Rhode Island Department of Health issued a notice stating that the recent baby formula recall was expanded to include Similac PM 60/40 after an infant died after consuming the product. The new recall comes after the tragic death of a baby who tested positive for Cronobacter sakazakiim. 

The Rhode Island Department of Health stated that the product number identifies the newly recalled Similan PM infant formula. The number #27032K80 is labeled on the Similan PM can. 

The symptoms of a Cronobacter infection include temperature changes, fever, irritability, grunting breaths, jaundice, rash, and poor feeding.
