Enfamil Scare: Do You Use This Brand of Formula?
Enfamil was a staple in our house for months. Breastfeeding didn’t work out the way I had hoped it would, so our pediatrician recommended that we try Enfamil. Mason loved it, and I felt good giving it to him. He switched to whole milk four months ago when he turned 1, but a new report about Enfamil from the Associated Press caught my attention nonetheless. Apparently, more than 3,000 Wal-Mart stores nationwide have pulled the powdered infant formula from their shelves; a Missouri baby died from a rare bacterial infection after being fed the formula. As Parents.com news blogger Holly Rossi reports: The decision was made “out of an abundance of caution,” the chain announced, as the investigation into the cause of death for the 10-day-old infant continues. Wal-Mart is pulling 12.5-ounce cans of Enfamil Newborn powder with the lot number ZP1K7G, although the government has not ordered a recall of the formula.
Do you give your baby or toddler Enfamil formula? If so, do you plan on switching formulas because of this incident?
