The U.S. Food and Drug Administration along with Abbott has announced of recall of Similac, Isomil and Go & Grow powdered infant formula after the presence of a common beetle was found in the product which could potentially cause a foodborne illness in a baby.
The FDA says that the formula containing the beetles pose no immediate health risk but babies who drink the formula which contains beetles or larvae could experience gastrointestinal discomfort including diarrhea or refusal of food.
Pediatric Associates with offices on the Eastside including in Bellevue, Factoria, Redmond and Sammamish recommends that babies who have symptoms of nausea, diarrhea or refusal to eat for more than a few days should contact their physician.
You can find out whether your baby’s formula has been recalled b:
- Search the FDA’s database
- Visit Abbott’s web-site and type in the lot number
- Call Abbott at 1-800-986-8850
There have been some complaints that Abbott did not list some of the recalled products on their web-site and that the Abbott web-site could not handle the demands of customer visits and calls. Some parents have complained that after they requested return shipping labels for the product, the labels took more than 10 days to arrive.
