Calcilo XD powder by Abbott Laboratories was recalled Sept. 13 by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for rancidity and an "off colour." (Provided)
An infant formula has been recalled in provinces across Canada, including Alberta, due to rancidity and an "off colour."
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says Calcilo XD powder by Abbott Laboratories should not be eaten, but instead thrown out or returned.
The recalled product comes in 375 gram packages and will have either a UPC number 070074533292 or shipper sticker 070074533285.
CFIA warned the product may have an unusual smell, and consumption could cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
The recall was instated voluntarily by the company.
CFIA said it is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products and that the public would be kept updated.
There have been illnesses reported as a result of the product, although the CFIA did not release details on the incidents.
The recall is effective in the prairie provinces, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
