Calcilo XD Infant Formula Recall
Abbott Laboratories has issued a recall for certain lots of Calcilo XD Infant Formula sold between June 2006 and April 2008. Manufacturing problems could have allowed air to enter certain cans of the infant formula powder, which could lead to gastrointestinal injuries if it is consumed.
The voluntary recall applies to Calcilo XD Low-Calcium/Vitamin D-Free Infant Formula with Iron in 14.1-ounce cans (400g). The cans contain a stock code number 00378 and lot numbers 39973RB or 47239RB6 printed on the bottom. Other Calcilo XD powdered infant formulas are not involved in this recall.
According to a press release issued by Abbott, small amounts of air may have entered the cans, resulting in oxidation. If highly oxidized formula is consumed by an infant, it could result in severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. These gastrointestinal symptoms could also lead to dehydration or more serious injury.

Calcilo XD is a specialty infant formula designed by Abbott for babies with high calcium in their blood (hypercalcemia). The low-calcium and vitamin D-free infant formula is only available by special order.
A common sign of the “spoiled” infant formula is a sour smell, but consumers are being urged not to use any of the cans involved in the Calcilo XD recall. Parents have also been advised to contact their doctor or child’s pediatrician if they have any questions or concerns.
