Similac Powdered Formula Recall
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Abbott Nutrition have just announced a voluntary recall of certain Similac powder infant formulas in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some countries in the Caribbean.
Abbott, the makers of Similac, decided the voluntary recall was a proactive measure once they discovered that one manufacturing facility's products did not meet company quality standards. No illnesses have been reported.
The recall of these powder infant formulas includes certain Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers and some Similac powder product lines offered in the specific sizes of 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans.
No liquid infant formulas are included in the recall, and also not affected are any powder and liquid specialty formulas, such as Similac Expert Careâ¢ AlimentumÂ®, ElecareÂ®, Similac Expert Careâ¢ NeosureÂ®, SimilacÂ® Human Milk Fortifier, and metabolic formulas for inherited disorders.
To immediately find out if a formula you own is included in this recall, visit Similac.com and enter the lot number located on the can to determine if your product is affected. You can also call Abbott's consumer hotline, (800) 986-8850, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you do have one of the recalled products, you will be directed on how to return the product (at no cost to you) and obtain a refund.
