The Food and Drug Administration wants to ensure that infant formulas are as safe as they could possibly be, and to that end, they have come out with a regulation that enacts rigorous standards related to such products. There are three chief aims of the recently released rule. First, any product classified as infant formula would have to go through the proper testing procedures so that any potential contaminants could be identified prior to the product coming to the market. The production of the formula must also be carried out in a way that emphasizes cleanliness and safety. Finally, the FDA establishes benchmarks for the types of nutrients that must be contained within a product.
