FDA: Do not buy or give Mother’s Touch Formula to babies

Formula has potential to cause nutrient deficiencies or toxicity in infants

Mother’s Touch Formula (FDA)

The FDA is telling parents and caregivers not to buy Mother’s Touch Formula because it doesn’t meet FDA requirements.

The product is sold at markets in Kinzers, Loganton, and Gap, PA and was available for purchase directly from Mother’s Touch website.

It is marketed as an infant formula without the required pre-market notification to the FDA. It does not meet infant formula nutrient requirements for seven nutrients.

According to the FDA, it is not manufactured in compliance with FDA’s infant formula regulations. It was also not fully tested for the presence of potentially harmful bacteria such as Cronobacter. It has the potential to cause nutrient deficiencies or toxicity in infants.

Nutrient label claims on the product label showed the product to contain nutrient amounts below the minimum levels required for protein, linoleic acid, calcium, sodium, potassium, and chloride; and above the maximum level allowed for iron, according to the FDA.

If you have Mother’s Touch Formula you should throw it away.

If you have used Mother’s Touch Formula and are concerned about the health of the child you should contact your doctor.
