Abbott Labs, the makers of Similac baby formula, have recalled several million containers of their product after an inspection in the manufacturing plant revealed a beetle infestation, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. A handful of parents have reported finding insect parts in the powdered formula.
The affected formula was shipped to stores across the United States as well as in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The formula was sold in cans and plastic containers. Parents who wish to know if they bought the recalled formula can visit the company’s website at www.similac.com or call a toll-free hotline at (800) 986-8850. Both the website and the hotline provide information about which products were recalled and how to return them to the company for a refund.
