Similac infant formula recall

Posted Sep 22 2010 3:02pm

The manufacturers of the popular infant formula, Similac, have voluntarily recalled some lots of Similac powder infant formula sold in plastic containers and in 8-ounce sample cans, and 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans. There is a concern that these products are contaminated with a common beetle.

According to the manufacturer, "The United States Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA) has determined that while the formula containing these beetles poses no immediate health risk, there is a possibility that infants who consume formula containing the beetles or their larvae, could experience symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort and refusal to eat as a result of small insect parts irritating the GI tract. If these symptoms persist for more than a few days, a physician should be consulted."


Check out the manufacturer's website here for more details:, check here to see if you possess one of the products involved in the recall or call Abbott's consumer hotline, (800) 986-8850, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
