Abbott Nutrition Statement on Infant Formula Contamination in China!
Release Date: 19th September 2008
Abbott Nutrition extends its sympathy to all the children and families affected by the recent contamination of infant formula in China. As one of the most respected names in nutritional products, we understand the trust that mothers and health care professionals all over the world put in nutritional products -- especially those used by infants and children. Abbott remains committed to ensuring product quality, safety and integrity in all our products.
Abbott Nutrition products are made in the United States, New Zealand and Europe. Abbott and our suppliers do not use milk or milk protein from China. As a result, our nutritional products are not impacted by the current situation in China, and no Abbott Nutrition products have been found to contain melamine.
Abbott Nutrition products are made in world-class facilities using high-quality ingredients from reputable suppliers. All suppliers must undergo a rigorous qualification process before we purchase any ingredients from them. Following qualification and prior to use, each lot of ingredients is assessed to ensure that it complies with our specifications. Abbott performs ongoing oversight of our suppliers, and we perform extensive quality checks on our products before they are released for sale.
Ensuring product quality, safety and integrity is the top priority of our company and our employees.
