Baby formula found to lack iodine
HA NOI — Four more Japanese baby formula brands belonging to Meiji, Morinaga and Wakodo have been found to contain low levels of iodine that could affect brain development, according to the Food Safety and Hygiene Administration yesterday.
All above formula samples have not yet been granted products standard certification by the administration.
Earlier, two imported milk powder brands in Hong Kong were found to have insufficient levels of iodine, including 850g tubs of Japanese-manufactured Wakodo and Moringa zero-to-nine-months powdered infant formula products. — VNS
