Infant formula Similac recalled on bug contamination


WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 22, 2010 (AP): 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.

'Sure you have,' Andy agreed. 'But you don't do it. Because guys like us,<a href="http://www.jacken-moncler.org/">moncler online shop</a> Red, we know there's a third choice. An alternative to staying simon-pure or bathing in the filth and the slime. It's the alternative that grown-ups all over the world pick. You balance off your walk through the hog-wallow against what it gains you. You choose the lesser of two evils and try to keep your good intentions in front of you. And I guess you judge how well you're doing by how well you sleep at night... and what your dreams are like.' 'Good intentions,' I said, and laughed. 'I know all about that, Andy. A fellow can toddle right off to hell on that road.' 'Don't you believe it,' he said, growing sombre. This is hell right here. Right here in The Shank. They sell pills and I tell them what to do with the money.<a href="http://www.jacken-moncler.org/">doudoune moncler</a> But I've also got the library, and I know of over two dozen guys who have used the books in here to help them pass their high school equivalency tests. Maybe when they get out of here they'll be able to crawl off the shitheap. When we needed that second room back in 1957, I got it because they want to keep me happy. I work cheap. That's the trade-off.' 'And you've got your own private quarters.' 'Sure. That's the way I like it.' The prison population had risen slowly all through the fifties, and it damn near exploded in the sixties, what with every college-age kid in America wanting to try dope and the perfectly ridiculous penalties for the use of a little reefer. But in all that time Andy never had a cellmate, except for a big, silent Indian named Normaden (like all Indians in The Shank, he was called Chief), and Normaden didn't last long.<a href="http://www.jacken-moncler.org/">moncler outlet</a> A lot of the other long-timers thought Andy was crazy, but Andy just smiled. He lived alone and he liked it that way ... and as he'd said, they liked to keep him happy. He worked cheap.

costante e incrollabile fede che un giorno il lungo incubo sarebbe finito. Qualunque cosa si voglia chiamare, e Andy Dufresne sembrava sempre di avere il suo agire insieme. Non c'era nulla di tutto ci disperazione cupa su di lui che sembra affliggere pi ergastolani dopo un po ', non si mai potuto odore disperazione su di lui. Fino a quel tardo inverno del '63.Abbiamo avuto un altro guardiano di allora, un uomo di nome Samuel Norton. I fratelli Mather, Cotton <a href="http://www.giubbottimonclers.net/">piumini moncler</a> e aumentare, si sarebbe sentito a proprio agio con Sam Norton. Per quanto ne so, nessuno aveva mai visto tanto come rompere un sorriso. Aveva una trentennale pin dal Avvento Baptist Church di Eliot. La sua grande innovazione come il capo della nostra famiglia felice stato quello di fare in modo che ogni prigioniero in arrivo ha avuto un Nuovo Testamento. Aveva una piccola targa sulla sua scrivania, <a href="http://www.giubbottimonclers.net/">outlet moncler</a> lettere d'oro intarsiato in legno di teak, che ha detto Cristo il mio Salvatore. Un campionatore sul muro, fatta da sua moglie, leggi: IL SUO GIUDIZIO VIENE E CHE DESTRA IN ANTICIPO. Questo sentimento quest'ultimo tagliato a zero il ghiaccio con la maggior parte di noi. Abbiamo ritenuto che la sentenza era gi verificato, e saremmo disposti a testimoniare con <a href="http://www.giubbottimonclers.net/">moncler outlet</a> il meglio di loro che la roccia non avrebbe nascosto a noi, n l'albero morto ci danno riparo. Aveva una citazione biblica per ogni occasione, ha fatto il signor Sam Norton,
