DT Friday Freakout: Got Milk? Edition

What, you worry? Here are some stories from the worlds of parenting and pregnancy and what not to freakout over this weekend:

  • In case you're having a hard time telling breastmilk and formula apart, just remember: they don't recall 5 million cans of powdered breastmilk for possibly containing beetles and larvae. Check the lot numbers to see if your Similac [pdf] is gnarly and contaminated bug-protein-fortified. [ap/yahoo via dt reader dt;]
