(Washington, DC) — The Food and Drug Administration is pushing to make formula safer for babies. The FDA unveiled new rules today requiring formula manufacturers to make sure their products are safe and nutritious. The changes include higher nutrient levels and microbial contamination testing. The FDA says it sets high quality standards for infant formula because it’s a key part of a child’s diet during the critical first 12 months. There’s a 45-day public comment period for the new rule.
