Since most of you are mommies to little one's this is an important read!
Drugmaker Abbott Laboratories said Wednesday it is recalling millions of containers of its best-selling Similac infant formula that may be contaminated with insect parts! (Yikes!)
The voluntary action affects up to 5 million Similac-brand powder formulas sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries. The company said the products may contain a small beetle or larvae, which could cause stomach ache and digestion problems.
The recalled products were sold in plastic containers and various can sizes, including 8-ounce (227-gram), 12.4-ounce (352-gram) and 12.9-ounce (366-gram).
To find out if your can of Similac is part of the recall you can check the lot number on the can on the Similac website, http://Similac.com/Recall, I just tried the site to see if I can find more information and the page is not loading. I have a feeling its due to high traffic. If the page doesn’t load you can try refreshing your screen or trying again later.
