NAFDAC warns against consumption, distribution of substandard US infant formulas


Recall that in March 2020, NAFDAC warned that the widespread use of infant formula products will increase child morbidity and mortality in the country, describing the use of infant formula as “inappropriate” infant and young child feeding practice, which he said had continued to rise in spite of the effort to discourage the practice among mothers.

The food and drug regulator noted that breastmilk remains the appropriate feeding practice for infants and young children because of its rich nutrients and minerals compared to any infant formula.
