Senators demand answers from Abbott on infant formula recall

News | February 26, 2022

Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Bob Casey (D-Pa.) yesterday demanded Abbott Nutrition hand over information and documents related to the company’s sweeping infant formula recall last week, after POLITICO reported that FDA, CDC and Abbott were all informed of the first infant illness in September.

“It is completely unacceptable that manufacturing conditions allowed a contaminated product to reach babies, and that it took months for the company to act to warn parents and caregivers about this danger,” the senators wrote Abbott CEO and chair Robert Ford, citing POLITICO’s reporting.
