Yayinle infant formula exceeds aflatoxin B1, which may be caused by contaminated raw materials

Guangzhou Industrial and Commercial Bureau announced the result in the recent sampling of dairy products and dairy products in the market.

Yesterday, Guangzhou Industrial and Commercial Bureau announced the result in the recent sampling of dairy products and milk-containing foods on the market. The results showed that 9 batches of infant formula, cereal powder, cakes, and milk-containing beverages were unqualified. In the sampling, YayinLe baby-specific organic rice noodles 0 segment and probiotics calcium iron zinc organic rice powder 1 segment was found to be unqualified for the aflatoxin B1 index.

Yin Lele has two infant formulas was listed on the blacklist of the powder, which is baby-specific organic rice noodles 0 and probiotics calcium, iron, and zinc organic rice powder 1. They were produced on January 15 this year all in Jiangxi Deshang Technology Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., and the model specifications are 500g/box.

Guo Jianxiong, director of the Guangdong Provincial Sugar Products Quality Supervision and Inspection Station, confirmed to reporters that aflatoxins were classified as Class 1 carcinogens by the World Health Organization's Cancer Research Institute.

Aflatoxin is a class 1 carcinogen. The data show that after eating aflatoxin-contaminated foods, aflatoxin symptoms may occur such as fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, loss of appetite and liver disease.

The reporter also learned from the Municipal Administration of Industry and Commerce yesterday that the packaging of the 0-section of the special organic rice noodle for Yainle baby is marked as applicable to baby for 2~12 months, the packaging of Yain Leyishengyuan calcium iron zinc organic rice powder 1 segment is displayed as applicable to 4~24 months baby consumption. In this regard, Guo Jianxiong said, this stage is where newborns need nutrition most. Ingesting unsafe milk substitute foods has a great impact on the health of infants and young children.

In addition to the strong carcinogen aflatoxin B1, the total number of bacterias and labels of the two infant formulas of Yayin Le also showed unqualified, and the section of coliform bacteria in Yayin Leshengsheng calcium, calcium and zinc organic rice flour has also exceeded the standard in detection.

According to the industry and commerce department, if the total number of colonies, coliforms, and molds do not meet the standard requirements, it will lead to food spoilage and deterioration that causes symptoms such as stomach upset and diarrhea.

 Problematic products still sold online

Although the reporter did not find the problem of grain during the visit to the market yesterday, from several major supermarkets in Guangzhou I learned that Yinle infant formula cereal powder was a hot brand, and many counters in infant food are very familiar with this brand. And Guangzhou's mother, a major customer of Yayinle, is revealed.

In this regard, the Guangzhou Municipal Administration of Industry and Commerce said that at present, the industrial and commercial departments have taken measures to remove, seal, and investigate unqualified foods to prevent unqualified food from entering the market.

However, the reporter in the Taobao and other online sales platform queried Yain Le rice powder yesterday and found that the same paragraph of prebiotics calcium iron zinc organic rice flour (1) and baby-specific organic rice flour (0) is available for sale. The product is for the infants and young children in newborns to December and April to April, it was produced from Yichun, Jiangxi with production dates from July 2012 to May 2013. According to a Taobao shop owner, this rice flour is organic grain, and the sales well, and the Taobao shop owner stressed that his shop's rice flour produced in May is only sold.

There is a suspicion that the raw materials are contaminated.

The test report showed that the excessive aflatoxin B1 in the two exposed cereal powders was suspected to be caused by the contamination of raw materials. Aflatoxin B1 is a product of the metabolism of Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus grown in food and feed. The two manufacturers of grain flour are all located in Zhangshu City, Jiangxi Province. Does it mean that the grain in Jiangxi’s Zhangshu City is polluted, and can it be inferred that other processed foods in this area are also toxic? The industry and commerce department said that raw materials used by manufacturers are not necessarily produced locally, and the actual situation is still under investigation.

 In summer, pay attention to temperature when buying dairy products. 

The industry and commerce department suggests that consumers should check whether the label of product packaging is complete when purchasing infant formula milk powder. The package must indicate information with product name, ingredient list, net content, product standard number, production date, shelf life, the name and address of the storage condition, manufacturer and distributor. In the label of infant formula, it should also include items such as nutrient composition table, applicable population and eating method.

Besides, the industry and commerce department reminded that in the hot summer, the temperature is high, and the speed of bacterial reproduction is also accelerated. When purchasing dairy products, attention should be paid to the storage conditions of food. Some dairy products and milk-containing foods need to be stored in refrigerated at 2~6 °C. When purchasing such foods, they should be stored and be sold in the refrigerated counters.
