Abbott Nutrition Recalls Ready to Feed Liquid Infant Formula

Abbott Nutrition is recalling certain bottles of ready to feed liquid infant formula because a small percentage of those products, which are less than 1% of the recalled amount, have bottle caps that may not have sealed properly. That could result in spoilage and could cause symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting.
