VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – If you’ve bought baby formula recently, double-check the label.

A national recall has been issued for the President’s Choice brand of lactose-sensitive baby formula due to contamination of a potentially dangerous bacteria.

The bacteria can cause a severe intestinal infection or blood poisoning.

Last week, a different formula product was misidentified as the subject of the recall, but instead, the Canada Food Inspection Agency says President’s Choice Sensitive to lactose milk-based powdered infant formula is the affected.

Call your doctor if you think you family member has become sick from ingesting the formula.
