Is there any possible health risks to the recalled similac?

I know the similac site says no but can we trust them not to cover their own butts? Is there any other way to find out?

  • I highly doubt it to be honest. I wouldn't worry about the issue to much. If you are extremely concerned, speak to your child's doctor.

  • I doubt that there is a health risk. There are bugs in peanut butter....And in some of the veggies you eat that have not been properly cleaned.

  • I saw a Doctor on the news today say no risk but if there is any sign of discomfort, it would go away with in 48 hrs once off the milk...

  • There are health risks with any formula, but especially contaminated ones. Yes, there are bugs in a lot of processed foods... but not usually enough to be recalled. This was beetles and larvae... Gross! It really makes you wonder what the condition the processing plants are in to be attracting those creatures.

  • Really? I guess the answer is no, if you are OK with your infant ingesting insect parts and larva. Formula alone is a health risk. I would hate to see what formula plants look like if that many beetles were able to get in millions of dollars worth of formula without anyone noticing. They must really care about their customers children.

  • No. I have seen so many posts on here that say things like "My baby ate an (insert insect name) what should I do?" While it is discusting it seems like an isolated incident and at least they had the decency to recall it to fix the problem.
