FDA: Do not feed this formula to your infant – KSAT San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is telling parents and caregivers not to buy or use Mother’s Touch Formulabecause it doesn’t meet federal health and safety requirements.

Mother’s Touch Formula

Parents searching for the formula during the continuing shortage may have purchased it online from the company’s website.

According to the FDA, the formula is not manufactured in compliance with FDA’s infant formula regulations. It was also not thoroughly tested for potentially harmful bacteria, such as Cronobacter, and has the potential to cause nutrient deficiencies or toxicity in infants.

Nutrient label claims on the product label showed the product to contain nutrient amounts below the minimum levels required for protein, linoleic acid, calcium, sodium, potassium, and chloride. According to the FDA, it had above the maximum level allowed for iron.

If you have Mother’s Touch Formula, you should throw it away.

If you have used Mother’s Touch Formula and are concerned about the child’s health, you should contact your doctor.
