Beetle Scare: More Similac Cans Recalled
Total number of recalled products is 5 million.
The manufacturer of Similac has added another product to its list of recalled powder infant formula.
Abbott Laboratories, manufacturer of the formula, now includes a 22-ounce container of Go & Grow Milk Early Shield Powder (lot no. 93773T20), according to The Christian Science Monitor. The company released its initial list last week after beetle parts were found in a small percentage of the powdered formula.
The newspaper found the new item on the list after checking the company’s website. Parents can look at the complete list at www.abbott.com. Although the list was updated Sunday, parents will still have to compare it with the list released earlier last week to make sure they haven’t missed any products that are being recalled.
Since the recall was announced, Abbott has been flooded with calls and visits to its website. As a result, the company said on Monday that it was “increasing its call center resources” as well as the bandwidth of its site. (Christian Science Monitor; Abbott)
