Perrigo Company issued a voluntary recall of thousands of Parent's Choice Advantage formula because it may contain "metal foreign matter."

The formula is sold only at Walmart.

The recall affects 23,388 customers who purchased the 35-ounce, 992-gram containers of Parent’s Choice Advantage Infant Formula Milk-Based Powder with Iron.

The formula being recalled has a "Lot Code" of C26EVFV and a "use by" date of February 26, 2021, said Perrigo company in a release.

The company said the recall is out of an abundance of caution based on a consumer report. Perrigo said that no adverse events have been reported to date.
