Japanese infant milk to be tested for iodine

Update: August, 14/2012 - 09:33

HA NOI — The Department of Food Hygiene and Safety has asked for tests to be carried out on two Japanese-made infant milks to check their iodine levels.

The move came after Hong Kong's Centre for Food Safety found the two formula brands, Wakodo and Morinaga, had lower levels of iodine than standards set by the Codex Alimentarius Commission – an international food standards setting body.

Viet Nam plans to build a set of regulations to ensure baby food meets Codex standards. — VNS
