RADNOR, Pa. — Wyeth Nutrition announced it is recalling nearly 1 million cans of powdered infant formula sold nationwide under various store brands after a bacterium was found in samples taken at a manufacturing plant.
The brands being recalled include: Baby Basics, CVS, Home Best, Healthy Baby, Kozy Kids, Hill Country Fare, HEB, Little Ones, Parent's Choice, Safeway Select and Walgreens.
The cans have expiration dates stamped on the bottom ranging from July 28, 2005, to Sept. 28, 2005.
Samples of the milk- and soy-based products tested at the plant in Georgia, Vt., found low levels of Enterobacter sakazakii, a bacterium commonly found in the environment, the company said Friday.
Consumers can return the cans to the place of purchase or call (888) 526-5376 for information.
