FDA Issues Warning Letters to Three Infant Formula Manufacturers

 The agency is urging companies to correct manufacturing processes to prevent contamination.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent warning letters to three infant formula companies, telling them to correct their manufacturing processes to better prevent bacterial contamination. 

The three companies, ByHeart, Mead Johnson Nutrition, and the Wisconsin unit of Perrigo, recalled infant formula earlier this year because of bacterial contamination. “The agency… believes that the recalls were effective in removing the potentially contaminated batches of product from the market,” the FDA said in the letters.

The companies made notes as to how the formula became contaminated, but have yet to update their manufacturing processes to prevent similar circumstances. “We are in the process of carefully reviewing the FDA’s letter and plan to work closely with the agency,” said a spokesperson for Perrigo.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For FDA officials as they seek to prevent contamination in the manufacturing process of infant formula.
  • For Commissioner Robert Califf to seek God’s direction as he heads the FDA.
  • For the parents and families who depend on formula for their infants.
