FDA Sets Acceptable Melamine Levels For Baby Formula

Mommy, I’m hungry, can I have more melamine? Sure thing, sweetie, because the FDA established that 1 part per million of melamine in baby formula is cool, as long as an additional chemical isn’t present.

Lab tests of the formula made by those responsible for making 90% of American infant formula found trace amounts of melamine. However, the levels were far less than what’s been found in China, responsible for killing 3 infants and sickening thousands.
