Key Facts

  • CNN — The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined the company running a plant at the center of a baby formula recall didn’t take steps to prevent products from becoming contaminated during manufacturing, according to a preliminary report filed this month.
  • The company, Abbott Nutrition, also failed to ensure that surfaces in the plant that touched the formula were maintained to prevent contamination, the FDA inspection – conducted between January 31 and March 18 – found.
  • Abbott’s statement added no Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria or Salmonella were found in any of the company’s testing of products distributed to consumers, and genetic testing of the Cronobacter sakazakii samples found at its Michigan facility did not match microbes from reported cases.
  • The FDA’s inspection findings revealed, however, that in the course of a January internal investigation into the report of a baby’s death, Abbott failed to test retained samples of the Similac Pro Total Comfort formula that the baby was drinking when he or she fell ill.
