The CBS Evening News (9/22, story 7, 0:15, Couric) reported, “There’s a new food recall today, the makers of Similac are voluntarily recalling five million containers of powdered baby formula across the US, Guam and the Caribbean. Some were found to contain insects.”
The Chicago Tribune (9/23), citing Abbott, says “the recall comes after reports by two consumers of contamination and an internal quality review of an area of the plant in Sturgis, Mich., where beetles or their larvae were found.” The “recalled products involve powdered Similac in plastic containers, and in 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans.”
The Wall Street Journal (9/23, Rockoff) says a company spokeswoman said Abbott expects to record lost sales of $100 million in the third quarter because of the recall. The AP (9/23, Perrone) also covers the story.
