If you use Similac powdered formula, you may want to find out if the cans you currently have are part of the recent product recall.
Beetles were found in the production area during a routine quality check. Due to the remote possibility of beetles or larvae being contaminating the infant formula cans, Similac is voluntarily recalling certain lots of powdered products in plastic containers, and some powdered products in 8-ounce, 12.4 ounce and 12.9 ounce cans.
The FDA is advising that there is no immediate health risk to infants, but drinking contaminated formula may cause irritation of the GI tract, resulting in a refusal to eat. If your child experiences symptoms that last more than 2-3 days, they are recommending you contact your pediatrician.
To make sure your baby isn’t drinking beetle parts or larvae, visit this site and enter your lot #: www.similac.com/recall/lookup. Alternatively, you can also call (888) 376-2054.
