Doctors worry European baby formulas can be dangerous in the US

Doctors worry European baby formulas can be dangerous in the US Moms and dads are paying top dollar for brands like HiPP and Holle. But according to the New York Times, buying European formula from third-party sellers carries risks. In fact, Dr. Abeba Berhane, a pediatrician at DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, strongly advises parents against buying blends that have not been regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. “The FDA has two main objectives when it comes to formula,” Dr. Berhane told TODAY Parents. “First, they want to make sure that the formula is made in a safe manner and that there are no infection risks.

Mixing up a bottle, she noticed it separated, and clumped up when she threw it in the sink, unlike the regular powder. Roque believes the baby formula was swapped for flour and returned to the shelf.

"And then when I poured it the bottle into the sink I saw how it got, that's when it hit me," Roque said. "I saw how it clumped up and I'm like oh my god my daughter's stomach is just the same or worse."

Roque returned the formula to Wal-Mart. The company told WCNC it is investigating the incident, and said stores do not put returned products back on sale.

Police have launched an investigation into a number of similar cases of this alleged baby formula con whereby scammers swap out expensive baby formula for cheap flour and return it to stores for a refund, according to WCNC.

The suit accuses Frontier Airlines of gross negligence and defamation. © AP Photo/David Zalubowski Rosetta Swinney filed the civil lawsuit Thursday in federal court. Back in April, Swinney and her daughter had just attended a wedding and were headed home to Durham from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas when the incident unfolded on the Frontier flight. According to the suit, the plane was already delayed so staff could clean the aircraft. That's why she was surprised that the seat was still dirty when she boarded with her daughter.

“The Wal - Mart surveillance video and eyewitnesses prove that the killing of John H.

This is not an isolated incident. In June, a mother in the Tampa Bay area of Florida said she bought baby formula to find it was a flour-like substance.

In a Facebook post, Ashley Frydrych detailed a similarly concerning experience with her son who wouldn't drink his milk. "He was extremely fussy, gassy and didn't sleep well," she said.

"My husband noticed this morning that the bottle's substance separated only a few minutes after I made it. He goes in to check the 'formula' and its FLOUR!!!" she wrote. She said the incident was "scary" and wondered how many other parents had been duped. Frydrych urged parents to check their formula containers before leaving the store.

"Now the anger sets in—my child hasn't eaten in almost 12 hours," she said. "He's gassy and tired because I'm not feeding him properly. What a selfish and pitiful way to scam stores for refund money, especially knowing another baby out there will be harmed by your actions. I can't even express how angry and upset I am at myself and whoever did this in the first place."
