FDA sets safe level for melamine in infant formula

Only one week after finding that US Infant Formula contained Melamine, the FDA has set a “safety threshold” for Melamine that lucky for our baby formula companies is higher than the amounts being added to baby formula. Prasie the FDA; no product recalls will be necessary.

Now then, aside from the fact that one week is way too short to conduct a study, especially for the government, how does anyone KNOW what a safe level of exposure is, since the effects are CUMULATIVE OVER TIME, and can vary widely depending on the body chemistry of the infant’s excretory system?

Only one month ago, the FDA said it could not identify ANY safe level of exposure for infants! – wrh
