Similac Infant Baby Formula — only the powder, not the liquid — may have a common form of beetle, or its larvae, mixed in with the powdered Similac product, and Abbott Laboratories has issued a voluntary recall of its well-known and formerly well-respected infant baby food product.

If you believe that your child has been harmed by Similac, then take the baby to a doctor immediately.  And, save the can or bin that contains the powdered formula — that’s your evidence, if you ever need to make a claim.
