Reports of tampered infant formula at Edmonton Walmart, no illnesses: CFIA

By The Canadian Press on August 14, 2019.

EDMONTON – The federal food safety watchdog says there are reports that tampered infant formula has been found at a Walmart in southeast Edmonton.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the tampered formula had their seals broken and the product inside the containers had been substituted.

It says no illnesses associated with the products, which have not been identified, have been reported.

The agency says consumers who use infant formulas should check the packaging material to ensure that the security seal is intact or if the product has been switched with something else.

It says if the product appears to have been altered it should not be used and people should call police or the agency.

The CFIA says finding broken seals is not typically associated with the manufacturing process but can happen when a consumer returns altered products to the retail store for a refund.
