Such sad news, Carrie.
Sounds very much like what happened in China, but on a much smaller scale as the manufacturer quickly did the right thing and recalled the contaminated baby formula.

This is just heartbreaking. I feel so sorry for all the new parents who have lost their baby, and for all the parents who are suffering right now not knowing if their babies are going to survive.

Sad. It is good to hear that the product has been recalled so the hospital supply is safe now.

As the copy says it is liquid food for premature babies in SCBU it not 'Formula' (commercial baby milk) and the article should be corrected on this as the title could cause much worry to new parents. A headline has been worded to create drama and is inappropriate and unethical for a writer in the special circumstances.

The product that caused this bab's death should be recalled and held responsible. Breast feeding is always the safest and if possible be the way to feed your baby.
