Published: Dec 29, 2011

U.S. regulators have spent today and yesterday inspecting a Mead Johnson Nutrition Co. (MJN) factory as part of an investigation into whether a Missouri child’s death this month was due to tainted infant formula. Food and Drug Administration inspectors remain at the plant in Zeeland, Michigan, Susan Ricker, Mead Johnson’s global quality-services director, said today in a telephone interview. The Glenview, Illinois-based company said Dec. 25 that its tests had shown the batch of formula used by the infant was not contaminated with the Cronobacter bacteria blamed for the death.
