Abbott has issued a press release voluntarily recalling certain lots of 2 fluid ounce/59 milliliter bottles of Ready-to-Feed (RTF) liquid formula products. For a list of products and lot numbers included in the recall, click here 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:

  • Similac® Pro-Total Comfort®
  • Similac® 360 Total Care®
  • Similac® 360 Total Care® Sensitive
  • Similac® Special Care® 24
  • Similac® Stage 1
  • Similac® Water (Sterilized)
  • Similac® NeoSure®

The Florida Department of Health 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. If your product is included in the recall, immediately discontinue use of the product and contact Abbott customer service at 1-800-986-8540 for further instructions.

For all feeding-related questions or concerns about your child’s health, contact your health care professional or the Florida Department of Health in St. Johns County’s Public Health Nutrition Program for Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) at 904-506-6081.

The WIC program provides Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards for free food to use at local grocery stores.  Grocery shopping is smart and easy with the WIC EBT card, and you can choose how little or how much you want to buy each time you shop with your WIC EBT card.  WIC food packages typically include:

  •   Low   fat milk
  •   Cheese
  •   Eggs
  •   Juice
  •   Cereal
  •   Whole   grains
  •   Peanut   butter
  •   Fruits   and vegetables
  •   Low-Fat yogurt

WIC food packages promote and support the establishment of successful and long-term breastfeeding. Weekly Breastfeeding Support Groups are held at Flagler Health+. Breastfeeding is the best choice for baby, however, when breastfeeding does not prove to be the best choice for Mom, infant formula can be provided.  The formulas that WIC currently provides include:

  •   Enfamil   Infant
  •   Enfamil   Gentlease
  •   Enfamil   AR
  •   Enfamil   Reguline
  •   Similac   Soy Isomil
