Infant Formula Urgently Recalled

Sunday, September 26th, 2010


Abbott Laboratories has voluntarily recalled up to 5 million containers of its popular powdered Similac infant formula after finding evidence that beetles had possibly contaminated it. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration cautioned that tiny insect parts could irritate babies delicate digestive tracts, and might make them refuse to eat. Dr. Brown, founder of Beaute de Maman, is sharing this information with all her web OB readers who might be using this product or are considering switching from breast milk to this product.

“So far, no major repercussions have been reported for infants drinking the contaminated formula, but we wanted to pass this information along to all our readers as quickly as we could,” said Dr. Brown.
