Abbott recalls certain Similac formula over packaging defects

Abbott Nutrition is recalling certain Similac bottles of formula over a packaging defect. 

Early this year, Abbott initiated a large recall of some of its infant formula products and closed its Michigan plant in February after reports of serious bacterial infections in infants. According to the FDA, there has been a total of five infants with cronobacter infections resulting in hospitalization and three deaths connected to Abbott formula products produced at its Michigan plant.

The FDA has received 129 complaints linked to Abbott formula products, including 119 since the product recall.

The recall and closure of the plant sparked a shortage of infant formula that caused an interruption in supplies of more than 70 percent, according to Datasembly, which tracks retail data.

The current recall was initiated on Aug. 16 and is ongoing. It was posted by the FDA on Sept. 7. The product was distributed in Michigan and Ohio.

Recalled products:
