U.S. Food Producer Says Its Milk Powder Does Not Contain Melamine

Following reports in Chinese media that its milk powder contains melamine, Mead Johnson, one of the major infant formula milk powder producers in the U.S., has announced that the reports were not true and its milk powder does not contain the harmful substance.

Mead Johnson has posted an item on its website, saying that "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has confirmed that no melamine has been detected in Enfamil LIPIL infant formula products and that recent media reports indicating that trace levels were detected are inaccurate. The U.S. FDA has indicated that it will issue a statement on its website confirming these facts and it will contact key media outlets to correct the information that was erroneously reported in the media."

On November 27, Chinese media cited an FDA test report that Mead Johnson's Enfamil LIPIL infant formula products and Nestle's Good Start infant formula products contained a small quantity of melamine. The report said that Abbott's internal tests also found melamine on its products.

In spite of the reports, the three parties' products are still on sale in China. All of them claim that their products have passed the test of China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine and have proved to be up to standard.
