Calcilo XD Low-Calcium & Vitamin D-Free Infant Formula With Iron Powder

Audience: Consumers, pediatricians, other healthcare professionals
[Posted 06/02/2008] Abbott notified consumers and healthcare professionals of the recall of two lots of Calcilo XD Low-Calcium/vitamin D-Free Infant Formula with Iron powder, a low-calcium and Vitamin D-free infant formula specifically designed for the nutrition support of infants and children with hypercalcemia. The product, distributed in the United States between 06/06/06 and 04/17/08, is being recalled because small amounts of air may have entered the can, resulting in product oxidation. Consumption of highly oxidized foods can cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Parents should contact their healthcare professional if they have any questions or concerns.
