Wal-Mart Pulls Baby Formula

KSCB News - December 22, 2011 8:06 am

A Wal-Mart spokeswoman says the company has
pulled a batch of powdered infant formula from more than 3,000
stores nationwide after a newborn Missouri boy became fatally ill
with a suspected infection.
Dianna Gee said Wednesday the move is cautionary as health
officials investigate Sunday’s death of 10-day-old Avery Cornett of
Lebanon, Missouri.
No government recall has been ordered for the 12.5-ounce cans of
Enfamil Newborn powder with the lot number ZP1K7G.
The Lebanon Daily Record reports Avery received a preliminary
diagnosis of infection from a rare bacterium called Cronobacter
The formula’s manufacturer, Mead Johnson Nutrition, says the
batch tested negative for the bacterium. Spokesman Christopher
Perille says it’s unclear if other companies received formula from
that batch.
