Additives in Baby Products Raise Fresh Concerns in New Zealand

The New Zealand Food Safety Authority (NZFSA) has issued a warning to the Kiwi parents to stop using a popular baby formula for fear that it has additives not cleared for use in New Zealand . This warning has raised fresh concern regarding the safety of baby food in the country.
