Abbott Infant Formula Recall

On September 22, 2010, Abbott issued a voluntary recall of certain Similac powdered infant formula after identifying a common warehouse beetle (both larvae and adults) in the finished product at their Sturgis, Michigan plant. The company immediately put all product manufactured at the Michigan plant on hold and ceased manufacturing at that location. FDA has advised against consumption of the recalled product and urged consumers to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for reporting and returning the formula. FDA also created a searchable database that allows consumers to determine if they have recalled products in their home.
