The Food and Drug Administration says it will allow a trace amount of the industrial chemical melamine to be present in infant formula in the U.S.
Even Fox News is up in arms…
The new “standard” reverses an October assessment that concluded melamine below 2.5 parts per million was safe with the exception of baby formula. Suddenly, somehow, melamine at or below 1 part per million in infant formula is okay now. What changed the agency’s mind? Well maybe finding traces of melamine in Nestle’s Good Start Supreme Infant Formula with Iron did it. Or it could have been the traces of cyanuric acid in Enfamil LIPIL with Iron made by Mead Johnson.
Shockingly, neither company found the chemicals using their own tests.
Melamine is the same toxin discovered in baby formula in China that sickened tens of thousands of infants.
