  • New milk powder scare rises in China (2010-08-08)
  • Parents are facing a new baby formula scare which will bring back memories of the Sanlu scandal in 2008 when 300,000 babies were affected by melamine-tainted milk products. Shanghai industrial and commercial watchdogs said they were paying close attention to the local market after China-produced Synutra baby formula was reported as causing unusually early sexual development in infants in several provinces on the Chinese mainland. Three cases have been reported in Wuhan, Hubei Province, of baby girls starting to grow breasts as young as one year old. All three had been fed with Synutra formula since birth, according to Xinhua news agency. Similar cases were also reported in Guangdong, Jiangxi and Shanxi provinces. A 10-month-old girl from Fengxin County, Jiangxi Province, and an eight-month-old girl from Linyi, Shandong Province, also showed symptoms of early sexual development. A three-month-old boy from Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province, was found to have an excess of the female hormone estrogen. Last month at Wuhan Childrens Hospital, a 15-month-old girl was found to have the estrogen levels of a grown woman. Doctors suggested the parents stop feeding her Synutra formula immediately. The Qingdao, Shandong Province-based Synutra Nutritious Food Co Ltd said the products of the company were safe and had passed authorities quality tests.    Photo by Imaginechina
