Do Not Feed Mother's Touch Formula to Infants, Says FDA

The FDA regulates infant formula very strictly. That agency has found that Mother’s Touch Formula was not manufactured in compliance with the government’s infant formula regulations. It has not been tested to see if it meets the requirements for this type of product, and it contains claims on the label for seven nutrients that do not meet the requirements. The consumption of this formula may cause nutrient deficiencies or toxicity in infants.

In addition, this product was not fully tested for the presence of potentially harmful bacteria such as Cronobacter. And the FDA has not granted enforcement discretion for this product under the guidance issued in May 2022 when the Abbott Nutrition facility was shut down.

If you purchased this product, do not feed it to your child. Throw it away in a sealed or double bagged package inside a secure garbage can so other people can’t access it. Or you can take it back to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have been feeding this product to your child and you are concerned about your child’s health, contact your healthcare provider and tell him or her about this issue. You can report an adverse event to the government by filling out a MedWatch Form, online or through regular mail.
