Similac Recall Lot Numbers by Abbott Laboratories- Abbot Laboratories announced its volunteer recall of infant product, Similac for bug contamination. Abbot says that there is a “remote possibility” that they may contain small insect parts and beetle larvae.

According to reports beetles were found in the production area of one of the manufacturing facilities making Similac. Authorizes however inform the public that unlike Salmonella contamination, there is no immediate health risk from infants drinking the contaminated formula.

Babies who have eaten the contaminated formula affected by the Similac recall may experience symptoms including stomach ache or refusal to eat.

The Similac recall includes certain lots of Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers and Similac powder product lines offered in sizes such as 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans. For the complete list of Similac recall lot numbers, you can download the 38-page PDF file Here.

Similac recall does not affect Similac ready-to-feed or concentrated baby formula or any specialty baby formulas, such Similac Expert Care Alimentum or Similac Expert Care Neosure. Up to 5 million Similac-brand powder baby formulas that were sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries may be affected by the Similac recall though.
