OTTAWA — Loblaw Companies Ltd. is recalling its President’s Choice brand Lower Iron milk-based powdered infant formula due to possible contamination by Cronobacter bacteria.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the product was sold in stores across the country in 900-gram packages with a best before date of Aug. 29, 2021.

The national recall was issued Sunday. The agency says no illnesses have been linked to the product. 

Recalled products should be discarded or returned to the store where they were purchased.

The recall notes that while Cronobacter is not commonly linked to human illness, in rare cases it can cause serious or even fatal infections.
