factory linked to infant milk shortage shut down again

“Abbott has halted production of its EleCare brand of hypoallergenic milk to assess storm damage and clean and disinfect the factory,” the group said in a message on its website, published overnight from Wednesday to Thursday.

Production at this factory in Sturgis, Michigan (north), resumed in early June, after several months of closure linked to a recall of products suspected of having caused the death of two infants.

This shutdown had aggravated the shortage of certain brands of infant milk caused by supply and labor problems linked to Covid-19.

When the factory reopened on June 4, Abbott had estimated that it could begin shipping EleCare hypoallergenic milk from around June 20.

The new suspension “will probably delay the production and distribution of the product by a few weeks”, assesses the manufacturer in its last message.

However, the group believes that it has a “sufficient supply” of EleCare and most of its specialized milks to meet needs.
