Similac powdered baby formula may have insect parts in it and is being recalled by maker Abbott Laboratories, Bloomberg reports. The company says it found larvae and body parts of a common beetle in its product during routine quality checks at a Michigan plant and halted production. The voluntary recall could cost the company $100 million.
The liquid version of the formula isn't affected; it's only powdered Similac sold in plastic containers and in 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce, or 12.9-ounce cans. The FDA sees no serious health risk, but says a child who consumes contaminated formula could get a stomach ache and refuse to eat.
