Baby Formula Recall List 2010?

There is currently a recall of about 5 million containers of Similac baby powder formula.
The company that makes the Similac baby formula said the products maybe contaminated with insect parts. Beetles and beetle larvae that could cause stomach aches and digestion problems were found in a Michigan plant that manufactures the formula.
Where can I find the complete list of the products included in Abbott Laboratories' 2010 recall?

The 2010 baby formula recall affects up to 5 million Similac-brand powder formulas sold in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries. The recall does not affect any liquid formulas or other Abbott Laboratories products.
While those critters “pose no immediate health risk,” according to the FDA, the company says there is a chance that babies who consume unintentionally insect-fortified formula “could experience symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort and refusal to eat as a result of small insect parts irritating the GI tract.”

The recall of these powder infant formulas includes:

Certain Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers.

Certain Similac powder product lines offered in sizes such as 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans.

The lot number should be located on the bottom of the product.
Abbott urges parents to send recalled products back to them at no cost. You need to call their number and they will take care of it.
