Similac Formula Recall. For those of you using Similac Formula, here is information on a Similac Formula Recall that Abbott Labs has asked us to share with our readers: Abbott has initiated a proactive, voluntary product recall of certain Similac® brand powder, infant formulas. Abbott is recalling these products following an internal quality review, which detected the remote possibility of the presence of a small common beetle in the product produced in one production area in a single manufacturing facility. The United States Food and Drug Administration (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. This recall affects only certain Similac-brand powder formula products and does not apply to any Abbott liquid products nor any powder or liquid specialty formulas (e.g. Similac Expert Care™Alimentum®, EleCare®, Similac Expert Care™ NeoSure®, Similac® Human Milk Fortifier, metabolic formulas).
