Unfortunately, the website and phone line are so bogged down with people that you can't even access the information to find out whether or not you have a container from the lot that is being recalled.

My husband, mother and I have been trying since about 6:30 this morning (it's 2:00 p.m. now) and we still cannot get on the website. The phone line has a waiting time in excess of 30 minutes and I just don't have the time to sit around on hold. I honestly don't care about getting my money back... I just want to know what lots are contaminated.

If you're having trouble getting through to our Similac recall consumer hotline, we have added a new, additional phone # you can use: 888-376-2054. Please give us a call, 24/7. We'd like to hear from you!

We also know that there are still some difficulties with the Similac recall website (http://similac.com/recall). We've heard requests for a lot number lookup, and it is here - you can search for your lot number in the PDF list here: http://abbott.vo.llnwd.net/o18/similac/sms/pdf/similac-recall-lot-numbers.pdf . Once you get this information, if you are at all concerned, please give us a call. ~Similac Team
