Walmart Recalls Infant Formula After Baby Dies in Missouri

 

Walmart said it is voluntarily recalling powdered infant formula because one newborn in Missouri died from a suspected bacterial infection after being fed with the product.

The producer Enfamil says the formula tested negative for the bacteria before it was sold. "We´re highly confident in the safety and quality of our products," the company´s spokesperson claims.

Samples were sent to labs that are now conducting tests to identify the cause of the baby´s infection.

I was expecting Chinese melamine to be the culprit. Looks like it is a bacteria. Quality control and health safety are too expensive and on the bottom of the list of importance to most companies these days. They don´t give a damn about people just to save their bottom line.

I guessed you missed the paragraph that said "the formula tested negative for the bacteria before it was sold. "

My guess is that some unethical MBA signed off on a bogus test record.

Or a baby taking an enfant formula got a bacterial infection from improperly handled foodstuffs when they were being prepared at home, and instead of looking to see if the cause was local they blamed the "big evil company" instead.
