Yuck! Found A BUG in my baby's formula!!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

Ewww called gerber. They're going to send me coupons for two free cans of formula. This bug was in a brand new can of formula. Nasty.
Oh well. She'll get extra protein and crunch. Yum. Lol
;)

Edit.
I had breast cancer and lost my breasts. Don't see why I need to put that as this isn't about breast feeding.
On my way to johns Hopkins. My responses will be few and far between.

Edit2 - changed title so people don't think I found a penny in the formula.

Doesn't change anything. And truly, only 1-5% of the etinre world's population truly can't BF. Thye rest either get horrible advice or info, or they just don't

Quoting seraphimsong:

Sick! That's exactly why I bf!! If I found that I could never being myself to give my child formula again!

 I am sure you realize it but just going to say ...not everyone can breastfeed or sometimes it doesn't work out for others.

This will be a shit-storm between FF moms and BF moms.

Good luck!

Not judging! Just saying that's why I bf!

I did ff my first, but started hearing stories such as this & decided I didn't want the risk. I was lucky I never found stuff like that! I would of freaked!!

and you're one of the 1-5% that truly can't, so no hate I swear! That just really sucks.... and yeah I'd find out where it was made, but calling the herlath dept won't do much, because the FDA allows for certain things like bugs and bug parts in ALL processed foods....

Quoting AquarianPath:

I can't breastfeed

Quoting Aslen:

That's one of the reasons I breastfed... no risk of contamination!

 How does one know? It is best just to be supportive.

 I couldn't bf...it didn't work out. I don't give details because I don't like to be scrutinized and I am happy with my decision so I don't feel the need to explain.

I didn't call the health dept. I called gerber. I'm not upset. At all. This stuff happens. It's just gross lol
