NAFDAC Recalls Infant Formulas Manufactured by US Based Company

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has warned Nigerians to stop the consumption and distribution of infant formulas manufactured by Able Groupe, a US based company.

The infant formulas from the company were said to have insufficient iron levels and did not meet up with other requirements of the US Food and Drug Administration (US-FDA).

A statement issued by the NAFDAC Director General, Prof. Moji Adeyeye, disclosed that the agency had received information from the US-FDA on the recall of certain infant Formulas.

She said that the recalled products were sold under the brand names HIPP, Holle, Bioland and Kendamil, adding that they were recalled because the required pre-market notifications for these new infant formulas had not been submitted to the FDA.

The agency has therefore advised the public to report any issue relating to these infant formulas to NAFDAC PRASCOR.
