Company Recalls Plant-Based Baby Formula Sold Nationwide Due to Possible Health Risk

Moor Herbs of Detroit, MI recalled its Angel Formula because FDA testing determined that the product did not meet specific nutrition and labeling requirements for infant formula, even though it is marketed as such. 

Officials said that the iron, sodium, and potassium content were well over the maximum allowed when the product was tested, potentially leading to iron overload and electrolyte imbalances. 

According to the U.S Food and Drug Administration, the product did not have vitamin D, and a vitamin D deficiency can potentially lead to rickets, a softening and weakening of bones.
