Hi Lovely Posters
My DH and I are very concerned about the recent Karicare recall, sparked by a botulinum contamination of whey protein manufactured by Fonterra.
Unfortunately, it appears from conducting a simple google search that this is Not Fonterra's first strike with respect to contamination. In 2008 a company of which they purportedly had 43% interest was responsible for the melamine poisoning of infant formula, in which 6 babies are reported to have died and late last year a batch of their products was found to be contaminated with fertiliser, however, such was reportedly contained with no adverse effect.
It is alleged that Fonterra knew of the botulinum contamination since early last year (2012), however only alerted authoritie on 31/07/2013. I am really worried about Fonterra's apparent continued disregard for babies safety and am seeking an alternative hypoallergenic infant formula (0-6) not linked to Fonterra products.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
