FRENCH food giant Danone is looking into reports that its Aptamil baby milk formula is making some infants ill.
Aptamil recently changed the recipe of three of its baby milk formulas.
Hundreds of parents in the UK have complained on social media that the revised formula milk is making their babies sick. Danone said it had carried out extensive safety checks, but added that it was “taking all feedback very seriously”.
The food giant is now investigating the complaints and has set up a free helpline that parents can call for advice. Parents in the UK are advised to call 0800 996 1000, pressing option 0 followed by option 1. There have also been complaints that the size of the revised products has been reduced from 900g to 800g a tub, but the price remains about £11.
