Similac Formula Recall

baby formulaOn September 23, 2010, Abbott Laboratories Inc announced a recall of many of their powdered infant and toddler formulas. None of their liquid ready-to-feed formulas were included in this formula recall.
 
The reason for the formula recall is that their plant in Sturgis, Michigan was found to be contaminated with beetles and larvae. Although only 0.2% of the formula produced at the plant was contaminated, this involves approximately five (5) million units.
 
The Food and Drug Administration has stated that children who have consumed the contaminated formulas may have experienced gastrointestinal discomfort or refusal to eat or drink.
 
To discover if your specific formula has been recalled, go to www.fda.gov/safety/recalls/ucm226885.htm or call (800) 986-8850.
