Some recent infant formula recalls



A six month old girl first contracted symptoms of infant botulism in June. A suspected link to the infant formula led the authorities and the company to test samples of the batch consumed by the infant. The batches were close to their expiry dates. One in five of the batches tested, was positive for the strain that made the girl ill. The recall was taken as a precautionary measure as the results were considered not enough “proof” that the formula was the cause.
