Recall on Similac Formula

I am completley horrified that we gave our newborn son 3 bottles of this formula that had been recalled.It was bad enough we had to give him formula in the first few days of his life. Now he is on breast milk only but we had a few days where it was too hard and milk was not abundant! Certain Similac-brand, powder infant formulas are being voluntarily recalled following an internal quality review, which detected the remote possibility of the presence of a small common beetle in the product. The United States Food and Drug Adminstration (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. If these symptoms persist for more than a few days, a physician should be consulted. The recall includes certain Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers and certain Similac powder product lines offered in 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce, and 12.9-ounce cans. To find out if a Similac product you own is included in this recall, visit similac.com/recall/lookup and type in the lot number, or call (800) 986-8850. Both the website and the consumer hotline have specific details on how to complete the return process.
