About The FDA Infant Formula Recall In February 2022
A product recall by a manufacturer or retailer should be taken seriously, especially when illnesses, injuries or deaths have been reported. In fact, some children have reportedly suffered harm after consuming certain brands of infant formula. Parents and caregivers who believe that their babies or toddlers may be at risk deserve to know the truth – and some may be eligible for compensation.

Has Your Baby Been Affected?
If your baby has seemed ill after imbibing commercially sold baby formula recently, you should seek medical attention for your child right away. Get a copy of the doctor’s report, if possible. Also, look for sales receipts or packaging to confirm what brand your child consumed and what the expiration date was. We suggest that you write or make a voice recording about the details, such as the following:
- Where and when you or someone else bought it
- How your child demonstrated a bad reaction
- Any eyewitnesses’ reports
- Any medical records
Even if you don’t have any of these things, you should still consult with an attorney. You should know your rights if your child may have been harmed by tainted infant formula.
