According to Nestlé Australia, some consumers feeding their babies NAN
H.A. [hypoallergenic] 1 Gold® infant formula have complained about alleged
adverse health effects. A news source indicates that purchasers have reported
in online reviews that their children have experienced rashes, dark green
stools, dehydration, and vomiting, among other symptoms. Calling product
safety and quality a “non-negotiable priority for the company” Nestlé, which
has been testing the product, further states on its website that results “to date
confirm there is no food safety issue.” The company apparently reformulated
the product in 2011, replacing calcium chloride with potassium chloride to
produce “a better taste and a smoother texture to the powder,” and otherwise
improving its “nutritional profile.” See Nestlé News Release, August 8, 2012;, August 9, 2012.
