Formula is a touchy subject for me. I breasted one of my children for an entire year and quit because I was so pregnant with my second child I could no longer keep enough nutrition in my own body. When my son was born I was unable to produce enough milk to feed him so I was forced to give him formula. I had no idea what was what and even after a few months he had to be on specialized formula. We were given samples from the doctor’s office and only considered those as options and both of them were name brands. So I assumed not all formulas are created equally. And I was quite upset at spending so much money on formula.
There is quite a different in price in specialized formula and regular formula and an even further difference in off brand and name brand. PBM Products filed a suit against Mead Johnson for false advertising. PBM products was awarded $13.5 million because it was found that store brands meet all the same standards that Mead Johnson meets. They claimed that Mead Johnson was falsely advertising against PBM’s competing store-brand of infant formulas. They went further to say that they do not provide the same nutrition as Mead Johnson’s brands. This winning is one of the largest awards ever for a false advertising case. You can find PBM’s store brands at Target, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart. PBM’s products are 50 percent cheaper than Mead Johnson’s saving families as much as 600.00 a year.
Companies should think twice before they say negative things about other companies.
