Abbott spokeswoman Melissa Brotz said the presence of a common flea beetle was detected in the product produced in a manufacturing plant in Sturgis, Michigan.
The company has stopped production and shipment of the formula concerned and contacted the Food and Drug Administration to start withdrawing.
The recall includes certain product lines Similac powder that come in 8-oz, 12.4 oz and 12.9 oz cans. Abbott’s formula liquid is not a part of the recall.
The FDA said that this type of beetle, if ingested, can cause discomfort and irritation in the gastrointestinal tract, making the child lose your appetite.
The manufacturing plant is being fumigated concerned, a process that, according to the FDA began Wednesday and will last approximately three days
Brotz company spokesman said, “Parents place a great deal of trust on Similac, and delivering nothing less than the highest quality formula is unacceptable to us. That is why we are starting the withdrawal.
The recall is issued in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, and in some Caribbean countries
Abbott said parents and caregivers can go www.similac.com/recall10 or call the consumer line of Abbott, (800) 986-8850, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for more information.
