Novartis recalls bottles of feeding formula

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Novartis said on Wednesday that it
is recalling 2,712 bottles of an enteral feeding formula which
was incorrectly labeled as a tube feeding formulated for
diabetes which contains sodium and calcium caseinate,
components of milk.

People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run
the risk of a serious or life threatening allergic reaction if
they consume the product, the company said.
