FDA Recalls Moor Herbs Baby Formula

Golomb Legal. and our blog help keep you up to date on recent product recalls that could affect you and your family. In this post, we are looking at the recent Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recall of “Healthy Beauty” Angel Formula, which is manufactured by Moor Herbs.

The “Healthy Beauty” Angel Formula has been recalled due to:

  • Mislabeling
  • Nutrition deficiencies
  • Regulation violations

According to FDA test results, “Healthy Beauty” Angel Formula contains potentially unsafe levels of iron, sodium, and potassium. The FDA recommends a daily limit to these minerals, and all three within the formula exceed this limit. Various illnesses can develop in a young child due to nutrition misbalances.

Additionally, the FDA found that the baby formula contains no vitamin D. Without a healthy amount of vitamin D, infants and toddlers can be susceptible to Rickets disease, which causes softened, weakened bones. At this time, though, no infant illnesses have been directly correlated with the use of the “Healthy Beauty” Angel Formula.

In an uncommon twist to the average product recall story, Moor Herbs was allegedly instructed to stop selling its baby formula products in August 2021. The company was selling its products without adhering to FDA regulations that require products to contain a UPC and to adequately label all nutrition and ingredient facts. Despite the cease-and-desist order from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Moor Herbs allegedly continued to manufacture, sell, and distribute its products until the recall was announced in late December 2021.

What to Do If You Have Moor Herbs Baby Formula

The FDA has instructed anyone who has “Healthy Beauty” Angel Formula to immediately discontinue the use of the product. It should be discarded or returned for a refund if possible. The main concern is that the nutritional contents of the formula are not clear, so, erring on the side of caution, it should not be given to a child.

Will Moor Herbs Face a Lawsuit?

As mentioned, no child illnesses have been directly linked to the use of “Healthy Beauty” Angel Formula by Moor Herbs yet. Although, now that it is more widely known that the formula might not be fit for an infant’s nutritional and health needs, it could be possible that more pediatricians will be able to make the connection in diagnoses. There is the potential for lawsuits or a consumer class action to form. Even parents who purchased the product and never used it could become part of the plaintiff class, depending on how the case develops.

If you think you have the grounds to file a claim against Moor Herbs for selling its allegedly unhealthy “Healthy Beauty” Angel Formula, then please contact our firm. If we hear from numerous parties, then it might be the starting point for a class action that benefits affected parents and their children.
