Manufacturer Voluntarily Recalls Some Similac® Infant Formulas

In announcing a voluntary recall by Abbott of certain Similac® brand powder infant formulas, the FDA says that the formulas “did not meet (Abbott’s) quality standards.”
The September 22 FDA press release says that although ingesting the beetle-and larvae-contaminated formula does not pose an immediate health risk, it may cause “gastrointestinal discomfort” and a refusal to eat. See a doctor if these symptoms persist for more than a few days.

Concerned parents and caregivers should visit to find out what specific products are included in the recall.
Have any of you ever had the experience of caring for an infant with gastrointestinal discomfort? And just how do beetles find their way into infant formula?
