FDA investigates baby’s death ‘after drinking Abbott formula’: Authorities are investigating case as of January, less than a month after Michigan plant reopened amid national shortage
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating the death of another child after allegedly using infant formula produced by Abbott Laboratories.
The death occurred in January, according to a consumer complaint sent to the agency on June 10. The research is in the preparatory phases.
The FDA did not specify which Abbott product the child was consuming or where the baby food was produced.
The probe comes less than a month after Abbott reopened its factory in sturgis, Michigan. The factory is the largest baby food factory in the US
The facility was closed in February after a bacterial contamination in four babies, including two who died. The previous cases were reported to the FDA between September 2021 and February.
An “ongoing investigation” by Abbott and the FDA into the prior cases revealed that infant formulas produced at the Sturgis facility “was not the likely source of infection in the reported cases” and “there was no outbreak caused by products from the facility.”
Abbott did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment on the latest investigation.
