Formula Recall

Uh oh! I received an email yesterday that announced that Abbott, the company that makes Similac formula, has recalled FIVE MILLION containers of their formula (not the liquid forms, just the powdered).

Why? Ew! Ew! Ew! They say that there is a possibility that they were contaminated with insects and insect larvae. How utterly disgusting, let alone embarrassing!

Get this:

"FDA understands that this kind of contamination is a great concern to parents and caregivers, especially in a product they rely on to nourish their infants," FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D. stated on the FDA website. "To date, FDA has not received any consumer reports of illness associated with the recalled formula."

Are you kidding me? Parents are greatly concerned? How about highly disgusted and unbelievably angry.

I am absolutely relieved that I don't have any children on formula.

For those of you that do use formula, I thought you would want to know about this...
