Ottawa, July 11, 2014 - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Walmart Canada Corporation and Mead Johnson Nutrition (Canada) Company are advising the public that some bottles of Enfamil A+ Ready-to-Feed Infant Formula have been found with the tamper-proof seal broken and blue tape applied in its place. These bottles were found to contain water and some formula residue instead of infant formula.

A total of three complaints have been reported in Brampton and Mississauga.

Walmart immediately removed the product from sale in a number of stores in the Halton and Peel regions of Toronto and did not find any additional product that had been altered.

Consumers using infant formulas should examine the containers to ensure that the security seal is intact and has not been altered. If you have product that appears to have been altered, do not use or consume it. Product that appears to have been altered should be thrown out or returned to the store where it was purchased.
