Safe use of infant formula
There have been recent reports of a threat to contaminate infant and other formula products with 1080 (fluoroacetate).
New Zealand infant and other formula products are as safe today as they were before this threat was made. The ability for anybody to deliberately contaminate infant and other formula during manufacturing is extremely low. New Zealand’s food safety model is among the best in the world. New Zealand manufacturers maintain high levels of security as a normal routine. Security and vigilance has been significantly increased since this threat was received.
Parents and caregivers should follow the Ministry for Primary Industries‘ advice on how to ensure infant formula is free from contamination or tampering.
