Baby Formula Recall: Montlick & Associates, Attorneys Has an Important Message for Parents


September 23, 2010

Abbott Laboratories has issued a voluntary recall of its best-selling infant formula, Similac, after an internal quality review detected that the formula may be contaminated with insect parts. The recall affects up to 5 million Similac-brand powder formulas sold in Georgia and the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that the formula containing small common beetles or their larvae poses no immediate health risk. However infants who consume the contaminated formula could experience abdominal discomfort and digestive problems. The FDA suggests you consult with your child’s physician if the symptoms persist for more than a few days.
