      Abbott recalls infant formula on bug contamination


      http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100923/..._infant_recall

      WASHINGTON Drugmaker Abbott Laboratories said Wednesday it is recalling millions of containers of its best-selling Similac infant formula that may be contaminated with insect parts.
      The voluntary action affects up to 5 million Similac-brand powder formulas sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries. The company said the products may contain a small beetle or larvae, which could cause stomach ache and digestion problems.
      The recall does not affect any liquid formulas or other Abbott-brand products.
      A company spokeswoman said Abbott uncovered the insects last week in one section of a manufacturing plant in Sturgis, Michigan.
      "We immediately shut down that one area and began an investigation," said Abbott's Melissa Brotz. "We're in the process of resolving it now." Abbott manufactures Similac at several U.S. sites.
      Brotz said the company has been consulting with the Food and Drug Administration, which determined there was no "immediate health risk" from the contamination.
      Consumers can enter the lot number on their containers online to determine if they are subject to the recall. The products should be returned to Abbott for a full refund.
      "Delivering anything less than the highest quality infant formula is unacceptable to us," said Brotz. "We will do whatever is necessary to maintain the trust of parents in the coming weeks."
      The affected products were sold in plastic containers and various can sizes, including 8-ounce (227-gram), 12.4-ounce (352-gram) and 12.9-ounce (366-gram).
      Similac is the best-selling infant formula in the U.S. Abbott's nutritional products which include adult brands like Ensure had sales of $5.3 billion last year.
      Abbott expects to lose $100 million in connection with the recall. However, the North Chicago, Illinois, company confirmed its third-quarter earnings guidance between $1.03 and $1.05 per share.
      Shares of Abbott Laboratories fell 16 cents to $51.99.

      Is it easy to switch formulas for babies? Don't they get fussy?

      Just spoke to our ped, and he said he didn't expect it yo be an issue. We used Similac Advanced with Early shield for immune support. We now have Enfamil Lipil.

      I spoke with the pediatrician too a while ago....She thinks its not that much of a deal to switch to Enfamil Lipil...
      and I had a can of that at home (got some samples from when she was born) so I used it this morning...will get more this evening...
      I hope she just stays well with this formula change...I am traveling in less than 2 weeks and I so did not want things to change from a set routine at this time...
      This also makes me wonder whether the recent changes in her sleeping and bowel habits were a cause of this contamination or because of the introduction of rice cereal...*paranoid mommy*....

      Yeah Enfamil is good too...
      I think its more of an issue when you all of a sudden have to switch from one formula to another...

      I don't think switching to another formula should be an issue as long as it is the same type...
      like from Similac Advanced to Enfamil Lipil Premium....should be fine.....issues would happen more say you switch from soy to regular or regular formula to some special formula......look at the ingredient list.....
      my ped told us, basically the pediatrician will give you the brand he/she endorses....gets free samples from etc....
      overall i have heard enfamil is supposed to be better than similac, just a little anyways

      Darn! Recalls are a huge blow to any pharma company but Abbott is still trustworthy, they've been awarded the best employers in Ireland, 5 years in a row. But a loss of a hundred million dollars?!

      Well, at least the formula itself is safe and approved by the FDA, its just the batches that were physically (not chemically) contaminated that pose a threat.
      GS - It's all about enjoying the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

      ^no problems so far with the switch. But I mostly nurse. Maybe she doesn't care that much about the occasional bottle.
