Infant Formula Recall

Postby angelaezra » Thu Sep 23, 2010 11:02 pm

Hello everyone! I wanted to post some useful information about the infant formula recall...

Similac Powder Infant Formulas: Recall
AUDIENCE: Consumer, Pediatrics

ISSUE: Possibility of the presence of a small common beetle in the product. The 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.

BACKGROUND: The recall of these powder infant formulas includes certain Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers, and certain Similac powder product lines offered in sizes such as 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans. See the Product Photo page. The recall includes powder infant formulas sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some countries in the Caribbean. No Abbott liquid infant formulas are impacted.

RECOMMENDATION: If symptoms are noted and persist for more than a few days, a physician should be consulted. Products with affected lot numbers should be returned to Abbott at no cost to the consumer. To immediately find out if the product in your possession is included in this recall, parents and caregivers should visit www.similac.com/recall , and type in their lot number to determine if their product is affected, or call (800) 986-8850.
