The recall was issued by the FDA after reports surfaced that up to four infants had become ill and hospitalized, and one death has been reported, all linked to those specific formula brands.

According to, the products that have been recalled have a multidigit number on the bottom of the container, and the number starts with the first two digits of 22 through 37 and has an expiration date of April 1, 2022 or later.

They also warn you that if your product is included in the recall, do not use the product, and do not throw it away. Follow the company's instruction for the return of the product. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you have already given your child some of the recalled product, contact your healthcare professional immediately.

Obviously, if your product is not included in the recall, the company says there is no action necessary and you can continue to use the product.

The FDA advises parents who may have use the recalled product to look for any signs of illness. Symptoms may include fever, vomiting, increased irritability and increased tiredness. If any of these signs appear, then you should bring your child to their pediatrician.

The FDA also warns parents who are having trouble getting the specific formula for their child not to dilute any formula with water, or give their baby whole milk before they are at least a year old.
