I trust Walmart Store .. I would like to thank them for their action about what happened .. ^_^ (talk)06:44, 26 December 2011

What have I missed? Has walmart done something that restored our trust in a disgraceful company? Would they have pulled the product from the shelves without a recall if it was their store brand? This bacteria is found in dirt people. Wise up. (talk)22:15, 15 January 2012

Recall of Newborn Infamil

It seems that it is the cans that are being recalled. If one considers the opportunities for the baby to come into contact with bacteria in the home OTHER than from the formula, it could well be the cause of the child's death. Proper thorough cleaning of the bottle, teat and any countertops or draining racks is essential. Thorough handwashing is obvious. Running the bottles and teats through the dishwasher is also a good idea. Pets can easily touch the baby's face, hands and even the feeding bottle if it is placed on a coffee table or such. Handling the dirty diaper, forgetting to thoroughly wash one's hands, there are several things like this that need to be hard-wired into the parent to avoid infection. Handling the baby when visitors come should be limited, exposure to bacteria can be easily avoided if these precautions are taken. I feel terrible for these parents in their loss, and at this time of year too. I have a new granddaughter and can only imagine their sense of loss. (talk)14:29, 24 December 2011
