A brand of infant formula sold exclusively at Walmart is being voluntarily recalled after it was determined the formula could be contaminated with metal.

The Perrigo Company announced this weekend that it is issuing a voluntary nationwide recall of 35-ounce, 992-gram containers of Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron. The company said in a press release that “the product, sold exclusively at Walmart, is being recalled because of the potential presence of metal foreign matter in a single lot of the product (C26EVFV).”

Currently, it is believed that more than 23,000 containers are impacted by the recall.

As of Sunday evening, no illness or adverse events had been reported and Perrigo says the recall is ‘out of an abundance of caution stemming from a consumer report.” No other reports are affected by the recall at this time.

Consumers who may have purchased the product should look for Lot Code C26EVFV with a “use by” date of February 26, 2021, which can be found on the bottom of the package. Any consumers who purchased the product should discontinue use and can visit any Walmart store for a refund.

Consumers with any health-related questions should contact their healthcare provider. Consumers with questions about Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron can contact Perrigo Consumer Affairs at 866-629-6181.

This recall is being conducted in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Perrigo started more than 130 years ago by Luther Perrigo in rural Michigan. Today, it is one of the largest over-the-counter self-care companies selling products globally.
