ALLEGAN, Mich. -- A voluntary nationwide recall was issued Friday, June 21 for a baby formula powder sold exclusively at Walmart.

Perrigo Company is voluntarily recalling  23,388 containers of the product because of the “potential presence of metal foreign matter," according to a news release from the company.

The recall only includes one lot of the 35-ounce, 992-gram containers of “Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron.”

Perrigo says they issued the recall “out of an abundance of caution.”

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