Update on Recall of Kirkland Signature Infant Formula For Cronobacter

The recall of Kirkland Signature President’s Choice powdered infant formulas in Canada for possible Cronobacter contamination has been updated again. The first recall, issued on October 6, 2019, was for Lower Iron milk based powdered infant formula. The second notice was to correctly identify the formula that may be contaminated, which was President’s Choice Sensitive two lactose milk-based powdered infant formula. This new recall adds more information to the first two recalls. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The recalled products, sold by Costco Wholesale Canada Ltd, are Kirkland Signature brand Non-GMO Infant Formula for Babies Sensitive to Lactose. These products are sold in two sizes. The first size is 1.36 kg packages, with UPC number 0 96619 26926 6 and codes EXP 2020 NO 05 T05DVBV. Also recalled is the same product sold in 2 x 1.36 kg packages, with UPC number 0 96619 23600 8 and codes EXP 2020 NO 05 T05DVBV. These products were sold nationally in Canada at the retail level.

Food that is contaminated with Cronobacter will not look, smell, or taste spoiled, but can still make you sick. This pathogen isn’t commonly linked to human illnesses, but it is associated with severe intestinal infection and blood poisoning, especially in newborn babies.

This recall was triggered by CFIA test results. The government is conducting a food safety investigation which may trigger the recall of more products. If this happens, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.

If you bought eirther of these Kirkland Signature products, do not feed it to your child. Throw it away in a sealed package in a secure garbage can, or take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund.
