FSANZ submission: P1028 - Infant formula -14 June 2022

Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia lodged a further submission with Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) with regard to P1028 - Infant formula.

A&AA supports the creation of a new category Special Medical Purpose Products for infants (SMPPi) within Standard 2.9.1, and supports the proposed labelling requirements for inner packages, preferably with the addition of
ingredient listing. 

A&AA remains concerned that formula claiming lactose free or low lactose could be mistakenly fed to an infant with a milk allergy. 

A&AA remains concerned that that partially hydrolysed infant formulas may be recommended by health practitioners for the mitigation or prevention of allergy.

A&AA strongly advocates for Standard 2.9.1 to indicate that infants around the age of 6 months and not before 4 months should be offered foods in addition to the infant formula product.
