Baby milk withdrawn

This article was originally published in Foodnews

NESTLE has withdrawn 250 shipments of baby milk powder from South Africa, Botswana and Zambia, due to defects in the mixture. The problem batch of Lactogen 1, produced in South Africa, had been found to contain overly high amounts of zinc, copper and iron. "A technical fault in the equipment resulted in a wrong proportion of the mix, " a Nestle spokeswoman told AFP. "The problem is resolved and the product has been recalled. Boxes which are still in the factories and warehouses have been blocked."
