Similac Recall Over Beetles Contamination: Check lot number

We recently reported that Abbot had to issue a recall of its Similac infant formula due to possible contamination from the common beetle. The recall affects products sold in Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. along with a select few Caribbean countries.

Abbott has set up a new web page – – where you can check your lot number to see if your formula has been contaminated. The FDA reports that there is no health risk, although children who have ingested the affected formula could experience some discomfort.

Before you start to worry that all Similac formulas are affected by this recall, it is only those in plastic containers, those that are in 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans.

If your product is affected, then it should be returned to Abbott — thankfully this will not cost you a dime. It is understandable that parents will be worried right now, which is why you should call (800) 986-8850 for more details.
