The federal government is accusing America’s largest baby food maker of misleading parents on the health advantages of one of its baby formula products.
In a recent complaint this week, the Federal Trade Commission blamed Gerber Products Co. for not providing concrete evidence that the Good Start Gentle Formula can minimize or curb allergy risks in babies with a family history of allergies.
Gerber shot down claims of making false advertisements on its product, saying their claims are backed with extensive clinical research.
Good Start Gentle was produced with partially hydrolyzed whey proteins that are simple to digest compared to other baby formula utilizing cow’s milk protein while reducing the chances of eczema in infants.
The FTC is blaming Gerber for misleading parents of the product being approved by the Food and Drug Administration through its claims. The FTC also demand the baby food maker giant to stop making false advertisements.
