Canadian Brand-Name Infant Formulas No Better than Private-Label Formulas



    GORDONSVILLE, Va., Sept. 29 /CNW/ -- PBM Holdings, Inc., a global
supplier of private-label infant formulas, announced today that its presence
in Canada is growing as more retailers are looking to offer formulas
manufactured in the United States to Canadian parents. Now that thousands of
mothers and fathers in Canada understand that brand-name formulas are no
better than private-label formulas and there is a savings up to 50 percent,
PBM wants to share more information about infant formula and safety.
    All infant formulas in the United States must have the proper ingredients
determined by the Food and Drug Administration and have been manufactured in a
safe and sanitary manner. FDA has recognized PBM Nutritionals, LLC, as a
manufacturer that has met the strict FDA requirements for safety, nutrition,
and quality for infant formulas in the U.S.A.
    MayoClinic.com offers an online resource for parents who choose to feed
their babies formula. "Infant formula: the next best thing to breast-feeding,"
offers parents information regarding what they need to know when choosing and
using infant formula.
    "Mother's milk is best, but many moms choose to supplement their breast
milk with baby formula or to entirely formula-feed," said PBM CEO Paul B.
Manning. "We design our infant formulas according to FDA and Health Canada
guidelines to be nutritionally sound to support babies' growth and
development."
    In the interest of assuring consistent nutrient density, Manning's PBM
Products, LLC, introduced the first private-brand infant formulas in the
United States ten years ago. Today, PBM supplies formulas to more than 20,000
retail locations in United States and internationally in Canada, Mexico,
Europe, China, and South Africa.
    PBM powder formulas are manufactured by PBM Nutritionals in accordance
with FDA and Health Canada guidelines. PBM's factory is the only ISO
9001:2000-certified, infant formula-manufacturing facility in the United
States and has been operating for more than 20 years.
