Baby Formula May Be Buggy: Recall

The Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of the powdered infant formula, Similac, because of the "remote possibility of the presence of a small common beetle in the product." According to the FDA, there is no immediate health risk, but children who consume that formula "could experience symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort and refusal to eat as a result of small insect parts irritating the GI tract."

The recall affects "certain Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers and certain Similac powder product lines offered in sizes such as 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans." For more information visit the FDA's website.
