(Brainerd, MN) — Crow Wing County recently issued a release of a baby formula recall after four infants recently got sick off products from Abbott that were distributed across the country, and possibly exported to other countries, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The powder formulas impacted by the recall include Similac, Alimentum, and Elecare. To identify if you have a package affected by the recall, check the number on the bottom of the container. If it starts with digits 22 through 37, and contains K8, SH, or Z2, and has an expiration date of April 1st, 2022 or later, it falls within the recall standards. All of the recalled formula was produced at the company’s Sturgis, Michigan facility.

If you already purchased the formula with your WIC Card that is affected by the recall, return the formula to the store where you bought it, many stores are offering a substitution. State WIC has contacted stores and vendors to prepare them for the infant formula returns. 

If there are other concerns, contact your local WIC Agency, including Crow Wing County WIC by calling 218-824-1200 or find more info at www.crowwing.us.
