I have been freaking out about this all afternoon. I have two open cans of powder Similac in use right now (one at home and one at daycare), plus two that I bought at Safeway last night. I have been trying all afternoon to log onto Similac's website and call their 800 number. The website is down and the 800 number is constantly busy. I just went to the same Safeway to buy a different brand of formula and - guess what - they have removed all the powder Similac from the shelf. The very same shelf I purchased formula from last night. ARRRG! I'm sure they just did that as a precaution, but it's very frustrating when I can't even find out if I have formula that is affected by the recall. I'll be using another brand until I can find out!

I know the FDA says the insects don't pose any immediate health threat...I don't know about anyone else, but I'd like to avoid feeding my child bugs if I can help it. LOL

YIKES! This past weekend I made a trip to COSTCO and purchased 6 of their large Similac. I Finally got the website to load and all 6 are on the recall. Okay So take it to the store for a return, Yeah right that is a 4 hour round trip. Don't think that is worth to return formula. I hope the local store has some formula. I guess if they don't have any it might be time to switch to milk a month early...

I was finally able to get on the Similac website last night and look up the lot numbers on the 4 containers I have.

You should just be able to take them back to the store.
