Recall: Similac Infant Formula
Abbott Laboratories recalled a certain Similac-brand, powder infant formulas. Abbott is recalling these products following an internal quality review, which detected the possibility of the presence of a small common beetle in the product produced in one production area in a single manufacturing facility.
The recall of these powder infant formulas includes Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers, and in sizes such as 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans.
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.
