    Which formula is safest on the market now?

    My toddler drinks 2 bottles of Wyeth milk everyday (he is 3). I have been told by friends to stop immediately due to the concern over the melamine crisis. Which brand of formula or fresh milk should I give him instead? Any suggestion would be much appreciated! thanks.

    A lot of brands are safe, you just need to check the list of Rani post called "Melamine in Mainland Milk Powder Updates".

    i'm confused I thought it was just the chinese brands but does this mean all brands affected. Do these companies manufacture all brands. eg i have a can of Karihome goat milk formula and the tin says manufactured for a company in nz and gives the hong kong distributor but I can't see where it is actually made.

    Hi Rach,

    I'm pretty sure all the Karihome/Karicare formula is made in NZ.
    It's definatley imported from outside China.
    One reason why you pay so much for it!

    the brands like Hipp Organic, Cow n gate, babynat, Holle n so on you can find in Bumps to babes are safe as well, they are all imported from European countries but not China.

    Karihome

    Hi Rach,

    I was also worried about Karihome goats milk so I send them an email and they confirmed its packed and sealed in consumer-ready cans in New Zealand.


    The HK distributor of our Karihome products is:

    Orient Europharma Co., Ltd.

    Tel: (852) 2578 7080

    Email: [email protected]

    So Matty was right! I was really relieved and wanted to share this with you.

    Pixelelf, you can buy it at City'Super.
