Nutritional products and medical devices firm Abbott Laboratories issued a recall on September 13 for Abbott brand Calcilo CD Powder distributed to eight provinces in Canada because the products are rancid and off-color, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced. 

The impacted 375g packages of Calcilo XD powder bear the UPC number 0 70074 43329 2 and the code 79696K80 and were distributed in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan. 

“This recall was triggered by the company. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products,” the agency said in a recall warning posted to its website.  

Some illnesses have been reported among those who have consumed the impacted product, according to CFIA. Those in possession of the tainted Abbott powder are urged to throw the product away or return it to the store where it was purchased. 

Calcilo XD Powder is a low calcium, Vitamin D-free infant formula that can support nutrition in babies with hyperglycemia, according to information on Abbott’s website.
