The Food and Drug Administration has set safety levels for an industrial chemical in baby formula two months after the FDA determined it could not set safety levels for the chemical, the AP is reporting.
The chemical — melamine — can cause fatal kidney stones when it is combined with another chemical, has sickened more than 50,000 Chinese children (four of whom have died) and caused a global scare about Chinese exports containing melamine.
The FDA says traces amounts of melamine are OK and the nation’s supply of infant formula is safe.
I feel safer already. But I’m not trying any baby formula soon.
