Several brands have recently come under investigation for suspicion of being contaminated with melamine, a chemical used in plastics. Momlogic's Dr. Cara Natterson says, "Today's FDA advisory about infant formulas was only a warning directed at formula produced in China. All formula manufactured in the US is considered safe, and no baby formula approved for use in the US is made in China. There are specialty stores in this country, however, that cater to specific ethnic groups. The FDA is concerned that specialty markets in Asian communities may have some of the implicated formulas on their shelves."
