Executive Summary

Following FDA's Sept. 12 health information advisory regarding melamine-contaminated infant formula from China, the agency says Sept. 23 "there is no known threat of contamination in infant formula manufactured by companies that have met the requirements to sell such products in the United States." While state and local officials collaborating with the agency have not found Chinese formula on store shelves in large Asian enclaves in the U.S., FDA says it is taking "proactive measures" to sample and test other imported milk-derived ingredients and finished food products for Chinese milk proteins (2"The Tan Sheet" Sept. 15, 2008, In Brief)

FDA warns on China formula

Milk-based infant formula manufactured in China may be contaminated with melamine, which raises the protein profile of dairy products and may have contributed to reports of kidney stones in Chinese infants, FDA says Sept. 12. The agency says companies approved for marketing milk-based formula in the U.S. are not importing materials from China, though officials are investigating whether Chinese infant formula is being sold in Asian specialty markets inside the U.S. In its same-day health information advisory, FDA requests the help of states in removing Chinese infant formula products from store shelves. In April 2007, melamine-tainted Chinese pet food caused FDA to issue an import alert on vegetable proteins from China (1"The Tan Sheet" May 21, 2007, p. 6)
