Baby formula powder sold at Walmart recalled because it may contain metal

The recall covers more than 23,000 containers of formula powder sold exclusively at Walmart.

Perrigo has announced it is voluntarily recalling more than 23,000 containers of baby formula powder because of the "potential presence of metal foreign matter," according to a release from the company.  

The nationwide recall is only for one lot of the 35-ounce, 992-gram containers of "Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron." The powder was sold exclusively at Walmart. 

The company said it issued the recall, which covers 23,388 containers, "out of an abundance of caution" after a consumer report. 

Consumers who may have purchased the recalled product should look on the bottom of the package for Lot Code C26EVFV and a "use by" date of February 26, 2021. 

Perrigo said customers who purchased the product can visit any Walmart store for a refund.
