I heard this on the news, as soon as I awoke, early this A.M, and instantly tweeted about it. Similac is having a massive recall, over their powdered formula ONLY, but this huge, because millions of moms and dads use Similac powder, to feed their infants. We were using it, but stopped several months ago. I believe the recall is for recent powdered formula only.
The issue has to do with possible, insect contamination, which they quoted as saying ‘Insect body parts, (Beetles in particular), may be found in the formula (powdered),’ and you should quickly cease use, and either call Similac, (Though the lines are likely all busy), or visit the link listed, at the bottom of this post, for quick information, on whether or not your lot, is included in the recall, and what you should do, if it is! When I learn more, IF there is more, I will post it here in this post, but for now, it’s early, so this is all that I know.
I am unsure, if any children have actually gotten ill from this, or if it is simply something that got noticed, but they have said that it CAN cause gastrointestinal upset in children, and you should keep an eye out, so to me, that most likely means there have been some cases, of tummy upset involved, but I’m not 110% on that, or if it’s just what can happen. They say that it does NOT post any immediate health risks at all, but us parents aren’t really comforted by that statement, not when the word ‘Immediate’ is used in it. 🙄
The recall of these powder infant formulas includes:
- Certain Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers.
- Certain Similac powder product lines offered in 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans.
Regardless, stop use of powdered formula and check the link below, right away, to see if your particular lot is involved or not! If there is more news, I will surely bring it to you. **Remember, liquid formula, is NOT involved here!**
That’s all for now!
