OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/14 -- Product photos are available at http://bit.ly/1rftSp7

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Walmart Canada Corporation and Mead Johnson Nutrition (Canada) Company are advising the public that some bottles of Enfamil A+ Ready-to-Feed Infant Formula have been found with the tamper-proof seal broken and blue tape applied in its place. These bottles were found to contain water and some formula residue instead of infant formula.

A total of three complaints have been reported in Brampton and Mississauga.

Walmart immediately removed the product from sale in a number of stores in the Halton and Peel regions of Toronto and did not find any additional product that had been altered.
