NORTH CHICAGO, IL (AP) -- Drugmaker Abbott Laboratories says it is recalling a line of infant formula which may be contaminated with insect parts. The voluntary action affects Similac-brand powder formulas in the US, Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries. The company says the products may contain a small beetle or larvae, which could cause stomach ache and digestion problems. The affected products were sold in plastic containers and various can sizes, including 8-ounce, 12.4 ounce and 12.9 ounce. The recall does not affect any liquid formulas or Abbott-brand products. The company has set up a Web site and consumer hot line at (800) 986-8850. The products should be returned to the company at no cost. --- On the Web: (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press.
