(WIAT/CNN) — An infant formula sold only at Walmart was voluntarily recalled Friday because of the potential presence of “metal foreign matter” in a single lot of the product, Perrigo Company said in a news release.

The total number of containers affected by this recall is 23,338. No adverse events have been reported to date, and the recall is being initiated out of an abundance of caution stemming from a consumer report. No other products or retailers are affected by this recall.

Consumers who may have purchased the product should look for Lot Code C26EVFV with a “use by” date of February 26, 2021, which can be found on the bottom of the package. Any consumers who purchased the product should discontinue use and can visit any Walmart store for a refund.

This recall is being conducted in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
