S26 baby food scare - Tanzania
Health authorities are to carry out food safety tests on a popular baby formula, S26, after the product was banned in Tanzania this week according to The Times. The Tanzanian Food and Drug Authority banned the product — manufactured in Sandton, Johannesburg, by Aspen Pharmacare — after receiving complaints that it was making babies ill. No problems with the product have been reported in South Africa. Aspen said the product sold in Tanzania may be counterfeit. For more click here.
