ALLEGAN, Mich., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Perrigo Company (NYSE: PRGO; TASE) today announced that its infant formula division, Perrigo Nutritionals, is working with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to increase educational awareness around infant nutrition, health, and feeding options.

Perrigo's Chairman, President and CEO Joseph C. Papa stated, "Today's parents and caregivers are faced with confusing health information, and nowhere is this truer than in the areas of infant nutrition and infant feeding options. Reports have surfaced of caregivers diluting infant formula to save money. This poses a public health risk because it reduces the amount of nutrients an infant requires. Our aim is to work with the American Academy of Pediatrics to provide accurate health and nutrition information on breastfeeding and formula feeding so that parents can improve the health of their families. Perrigo remains committed to providing quality products at affordable prices for consumers around the globe."

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and its member pediatricians dedicate their efforts and resources to the health, safety and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. The AAP has approximately 60,000 members in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and many other countries. Members include pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists and pediatric surgical specialists. More than 45,000 members are board-certified and called Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP). For more information, visit http://www.healthychildren.org.
