FDA and the Ross Products Division of Abbott Laboratories announced a recall of one lot of Similac Advance with Iron powdered infant formula in 12.9-ounce cans, Lot Number 20307RB due to the presence of black plastic particles reported in a small number of cans. The particles are the result of an isolated manufacturing event that has already been corrected. No serious health or safety reports have been received that are attributed to this situation. This formula was distributed between September 15, 2004 and October 18, 2004 primarily in the Eastern half of the United States and in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri.
