Similac Recall 2010: Will more people breastfeed?

By Gary Johnson - Sep 25, 2010

With the recent Similac 2010 baby formula recall and concerns regarding young baby’s health, an old argument of breastfeeding Vs baby formula has resurfaced.

Jerry Reth of Health.Spreadit is saying there are a large group of people who think all young children should be breast-fed. This recall could start a battle between women who have been pushing for this, and the formula companies.

Some have even said that formulas should only be available via prescription, and these ideas are getting more support from the general public following the Similac 2010 Recall. The company will probably lose a lot of customers for good now, even though they worked with the FDA, who said no health risks were linked with the affected products.
