Nestle Challenged on Baby Formula Health Claims

At a Nestle meeting in Lausanne, Greenpeace activists cut through the ceiling and dropped flyers while absailing above the audience. The shareholders also heard a speech by Patti Rundall, an activist who stated that the firm is still not abiding by adopted by the World Health Assembly.

Rundall said the claims Nestle puts on its infant formula bottles were putting the health of babies at risk.

NutraIngredients reports:

“Rundall specifically took issue with the health claims being made on the firm’s infant formula and called for the company to remove the ‘Protect’ logo from the product labels. She also said the labels should carry the correct warning language, which alerts parents to potential intrinsic bacterial contamination of the product.”
