China: Babies Sickened by Fake Formula

By Catherine Wen

Several children in China were sickened after being fed a protein drink sold as baby formula.

According to Hunan TV, The children’s heads began to deform after being fed a product called Bei An Min. It’s passed off as infant milk and sold to parents.

The children developed eczema and lost weight. Some would repeatedly slap their heads uncontrollably. They were diagnosed with rickets—a softening and weakening of bones in children–caused by malnutrition. It’s unclear how long they were given the formula.
