Ihave 3 month old twins that are on Similac and they've had major spit up issues and tummy pain since they were born ( i also breast feed) It just happens to babies. It's ridiculously common and to go RAGING on a company that provides a quality product to our babies for 80+ years is a bit HOT HEADED. People are always looking for someone to scream and complain and blame for everything, especially in hopes of getting something free. Its pretty sad because we know that the makers of the product did not intentionally allow this fluke to happen, one of which i'm sure has happened to something you've cooked at least 10 times in your life and its just bugs. Get over it, people eat bugs in other countries. What do you hope to accomplish by bitching about it. Does it make you feel good to cry victim? At least these companies give you an alternative to breast feeding when you can't. If you complain enough all you'll do is raise the prices of what I pay for my babies' food. So quit bitchen and go do some community service and give back to the world or at least just get a freakin hobby if you need an outlet.

The Similac recall does not have an effect on Similac ready-to-feed or concentrated baby formula or any such baby formulas, like Similac Expert Care Alimentum or Similac Expert Care Neosure. Up to 5 million Similac-brand powder baby formulas that were sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries may be contaminated by the Similac recall though.
