Yet Another Reason Why Breast Is Best

Similac is "voluntarily" recalling their baby formula because it may be contaminated with beetle and larvae parts. This info is taken from the Similac website.

"The United States Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA) has determined that while the formula containing these beetles poses no immediate health risk, there is a possibility that infants who consume formula containing the beetles or their larvae, could experience symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort and refusal to eat as a result of small insect parts irritating the GI tract."

Thankfully that is not the brand of formula that we use to supplement but that's not to say that it couldn't be.

If you want more info here's a link to the Similac Website and here's a link to an article on the Associated Press.


  1. Yikes! So glad we use Enfamil right about now. Luckily I'm starting to phase Ryan away from formula and over to just breastmilk and some solids.

  2. That is frightening! I always love reading your baby food recipes... I don't have a baby, but I find them interesting.
