Abbott Formula Recall

We wanted to share some information regarding the recent Abbott Formula recall. Recall is isolated to powder formulas, including Similac®, Alimentum ® and EleCare®, manufactured at the Sturgis, Michigan, plant.

How can I find out if we have a recalled product?

The products under recall have a multidigit number on the bottom of the container starting with the first two digits 22 through 37 and containing K8, SH, or Z2 and with an expiration date of April 1, 2022, or after.

Please visit and type in the code on the bottom of the package, or call +1-800-986-8540 (U.S.) and follow the instructions provided.
