The Associated Press (AP) announced that the chain store Wal-Mart willfully decided to pull the formula Enfamil Newborn from its shelf’s after a recent newborn in Missouri died of a rare bacterial infection caused by Cronobacter sakazakii which is usually fatal in newborn under one year of age. “We decided it was best to remove the product until we learn more,” said Dianna Gee, a spokeswoman from Wal-Mart.
The recalled batches were Enfamil Newborn powdered formula cans which were to be found in over 3,000 Wal-marts in the Unites States. The FDA after receiving the finding from Wal-Mart did not announce their own recall as they should of done and the product could still be in other stores.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the FDA are still looking into this to find the actual cause of death in the infant. All customers who purchased these products are being told to return it to the store of purchase for a full refund.
An infant got sickly ill last November but recovered after ingesting the Enfamil Newborn powered formula. It is apparent and felt all around that the FDA is dragging its feet even when the evidence is overwhelming.
