    Similac recall


    This is regarding the similac recall. Approximately a year and a half ago I purchased a can of Similac powdered formula and we had found what looked like a very small worm or some kind of bug when we were about half way finished with the can. It was extremely disturbing, I was absolutely horrified to find a foreign object like this in my baby's formula and we had no idea what it was. I stopped giving it to her and immediately called Abbott Lab, the maker of Similac. They apologized and explained that their formula goes through rigorous inspection (as if she found it hard to believe that something would be in the formula) and sent out a box so that I could send it to them for inspection. Several weeks later they sent us a refund and a letter stating that after inspection they had determined that it was larvae. Since I experienced that and now there is a recall (with the formula I am currently using) I want to know how long has this been going on and consumers have not known about it? Is there really a strict enough inspection process for these formulas that we trust to feed our babies with? Maybe I should contact the FDA as well.

    Thank you for your time.
