A few days ago it was reported that Abbott was to recall certain Similac products from its baby formula range, which to many parents is seen as one of the most concerning recalls of 2010. Since then there have been reports of baby illnesses, and although parents believe it to be a side effect from the contaminated product, we cannot confirm that this is true.
Some parents are also annoyed at the lack of information that is available. However, we decided to take a look at the Similac website, and it seems as though they have now started to offer more information on this worrying recall.
According to one article on KCCI Des Monies, one parent noticed that her five-month old child was having issues his tummy.
We are not certain how much truth there is to this report, as Abbott has said in the past that they have not had any reports of illnesses due to their Similac formula.
For those of you who are worried if your baby formula is affected by the recall, Alan Ng has given information on how you can download the lot numbers. When the recall was first announced the Similac Lot Numbers page faced huge demand and crashed, but things are now up and running.
Do you have any reports of illnesses due to this baby formula?
