Certain Similac baby formula recalled

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Parents with infants who drink Similac powder formula, check your pantry because 5 million containers of this product are contaminated by beetles or beetle larvae. According to Abbott Labs the recall affects cans and plastic containers of popular Similac powder formula sold in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico and some Caribbean countries. 

The company implemented the recall after an internal quality review detected the presence of a small common beetle in the product in one of its manufacturing facilities. "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," according to the company's website.

 The recall of these powder infant formula includes:

  • Certain Similac powder lines offered in plastic containers
  • Certain Similac powder product lines offered in sizes such as 8-ounce 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans
