Recall - Thinking of the FFing moms

I am thinking about the moms with a newborn - looking at that empty can of Similac she was given at the hospital, told it was best for her baby if she chose to use formula.
Or the mom who was struggling with BFing and thinking that perhaps everyone was right and she should just give up and use formula because it was "just as good". And then finds out that she has been feeding her baby bug parts and larvae!
Or what about the mom with an immuno-compromised baby, or a premie - wondering about the effect this is going to have on her baby? What health risks has this exposed her baby to, and what is the company going to do about it??
A free replacement can just might not be enough!
Will these moms just hand in their contaminated can of formula and take the free replacement can the company SAYS is safe? Or will they feel they need to switch formula and wonder - is this new formula really safe? Or will I find out tomorrow that it is contaminated too?
What will they do if they find that no formula is truly safe - that all formula is contaminated with bug parts and larvae - and putting their baby at risk?
I am also thinking back to the China melamine scandal when the owners of the company said it was harmless and hid it for almost a year before the recall. Why do we trust the US manufacturers to tell the truth?
