FDA announces resources for parents and caregivers on imported infant formula


- Advertisment -spot_imgspot_imgspot_imgspot_img

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has created resources for parents and caregivers to learn more about the factors the agency considered in determining whether to exercise flexibilities for these products and how they should be used. 

The educational resources were made to answer questions about the hundreds of millions of bottles of imported infant formula headed to the U.S.

“The information and resources the agency is providing should help parents and caregivers find and understand how to use these safe, nutritious infant formula products that are comparable to those they’ve traditionally seen on store shelves,” said FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf.

Increased flexibilities regarding infant formula products announced by the FDA on May 16 have resulted in the infant formula products from nine countries, with a total estimated quantity of more than 520 million full-size, 8-ounce bottles, headed to the U.S.  

Additionally, the FDA recently announced that it is developing a new framework for continued, long-term and expanded access to infant formula options for U.S. parents and caregivers beyond the current temporary flexibilities.

These products have already started to hit the U.S. market and more will appear in stores over the coming weeks and months. The FDA is creating “Names to Know” graphics featuring the label pictures and details about imported formulas to help parents and caregivers recognize these products as they hit store shelves.
