    My daughter was sick for more than 4 days with an upset stomach. It then took us 6 hours to try to get a hold of Abbott Labs to learn the lot numbers for the recalls. After numerous complaints they have finally increased bandwidth on their web site. This is worst than the Tylonel recall!

    My grandson was on this formula for a few weeks and had constant problems, he has been switched to another formula and after four weeks is starting to get better. Is anyone else having extended problems from this?
