Popular infant formula manufacturer, Abbott, producer of Similac, issued a voluntary recall of their powder line of formulas, including some products in plastic containers or 8, 12.4, and 12.9 ounce cans. The products may contain beetles, larvae or insect parts, which may cause gastrointestinal irritation. No liquid formulas are included in the recall.
You may check to see if your product is included in the recall at www.similac.com/recall/lookup or call the consumer hotline at (800) 986-8850, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
It is not known yet if any injuries have been reported. When a product is designed for infants who may be very vulnerable to disease due to being born prematurely, or already having digestive issues, it is unacceptable to allow products containing bacteria and virus-carrying insect parts to be released to the public.
