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.
To immediately find out if the product in your possession is included in this recall, parents and caregivers should visit, and type in their lot number to determine if their product is affected,or call (800) 986-8850.
