The news organization eFoodAlert published a list of more than 128-complaints connected to formula manufactured at Abbott’s facility in Sturgis, Michigan.
The infants who were fed the formula reportedly suffered illnesses, and nine babies died, but the FDA says there is no scientific evidence linking the deaths to the baby formula the infants were fed.
The FDA investigated two of the nine deaths, which prompted the nationwide baby formula recall back in February.READ MORE: Michigan Ballot Initiative Aims To Protect Abortion Rights
The Abbott plant was also shut down as a result.
The agency says even with further testing, they could not definitively attribute those deaths to the formula from Abbott.
As for the other seven fatal cases, six of them did not meet the CDC and the FDA’s criteria to trigger an investigation.
The final case involved an infant who tested positive for salmonella, but the state health department could not match the complaint to any salmonella illnesses reported in their state.MORE NEWS: AG Nessel Says Abortions Are Still Legal In Michigan
