On September 22, 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.
You can also obtain information regarding refunds and formula returns. You will need the lot number on your container.
The following powder formulas have been affected: Similac Advance LCP with Iron Powder Similac Advance Early Shield Powder Similac Sensitive with Iron Powder Similac Sensitive R.S. Powder Go & Grow Milk Powder Go & Grow Milk Early Shield Powder Go & Grow Milk with Early Shield Go & Grow Soy Powder Similac Organic Powder Isomil Advance Powder Isomil Advance Early Shield Powder
