There is a recall of Similac, Similac PM 60/40, Alimentum, EleCare and EleCare Jr. powdered formulas. If you have recalled formula, do NOT use it. Learn more at similacrecall.com. Because babies need a specific balance of nutrients, you should NOT water down infant formula or make homemade formula. If you cannot find any available formula, talk to your pediatrician about other alternatives. Read more from a trusted pediatrician here.
