Infant formula recalled for bug contamination

Drugmaker Abbott Laboratories says it is recalling a line of infant formula which may be contaminated with insect parts.

The voluntary action affects Similac-brand powder formulas in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries.

The company says the products may contain a small beetle or larvae, which could cause stomach ache and digestion problems.

The affected products were sold in plastic containers and various can sizes, including 8-ounce, 12.4 ounce and 12.9 ounce.

The recall does not affect any liquid formulas or Abbott-brand products.

The company has setup a Web site and consumer hot line at (800) 986-8850. The products should be returned to the company at no cost.
