Abbott Labs has issued a voluntary recall of five million units of powdered Similac baby formula after consumers found beetles and beetle larvae in plastic containers of the product, as well as that in 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce, and 12.9-ounce cans.

The contaminated formula--which the FDA says poses no "immediate health risk" was manufactured at a Sturgis, Michigan plant, where production has been stopped while the beetle infestation is treated, following an inspection that confirmed the contamination.
