As of October 6, 2019, Loblaw Companies Limited has recalled its President’s Choice brand Lower Iron milk based powdered infant formula from the marketplace due to possible Cronobacter spp. contamination. The recalled product, which is sold in 900 gram containers, contains the expiry date of August 29, 2021 and the UPC code 0 60383 69839 3. No illnesses have been linked to the product, according to the company.

If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.

Check to see if you have the recalled product in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with Cronobacter may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Although Cronobacter is not commonly linked to human illness, in rare cases it can cause serious or fatal infections. Cronobacter can cause rare bloodstream and central nervous system infections and has been associated with severe intestinal infection (necrotizing enterocolitis) and blood poisoning (sepsis), especially in newborns.
