Abbott Labs is recalling batch lots of powdered Similac formula. Insects (tiny beetles) have been found contaminating the powder. Liquid ready-to-use and concentrates aren't on the recall at this time. This has had some parents in the ER with their babies. The products listed in the recall are also sold in other countries, so please check yours if you use the powder.

I couldn't get any of the recall web links to work, because the sites are swamped, but they also have a toll free number set up, I pulled it from one of the bigger articles: (800) 986-8850

If someone finds a working alternate link for this recall, please post it! This is not a scare, the info is all over the web and radio news today. This is going to be an extra pain for folks who keep a stock of extra formula powder and will need the batch info from the recall to check against what they've purchased this year.

i just found out today that my baby has been givin this formula since she was less than a week old. she has been primarily breast fed but givin to her so my wife could sleep. this past week we had to go to a specialist because of her lack of weight gain. any ideas besides no longer giving it to her as to where i should go beyond that? im already planning on contacting her doctors monday and perhaps getting legal advice in case there are long term problems. i dont want to overreact though but i do want to make sure shes ok and that her digestive system isnt hurt permanently. any ideas would be most appreciated.
