REGULATION OF INFANT FORMULA AND FOLLOW-ON FORMULA
EDM #1189
Tabled 02 March 2016
2015-16 Session
That this House is concerned that the provisions of the Infant Formula and Follow-on Formula Regulations 2007 are disrespected in the UK, as evidenced by the current promotion for Nestlé SMA infant formula by Tesco in breach of Article 23 of those regulations, the near identical labelling of infant and follow-on formula to make them cross-promotional in breach of Article 19 of those regulations, the widespread advertising of infant formula brand names and logos in breach of Article 21 of those regulations and the use of idealising text and images on labels in breach of Article 17 of those regulations; therefore rejects the Department of Health's proposals to decriminalise certain of those requirements, such as labelling provisions in planned draft legislative proposals, related to EU Regulation 609/2015 which will replace these 2007 regulations; and stresses that any move to a system of Improvement Notices must have the purpose of speeding up compliance and be backed by prosecutions rather than giving companies who have flouted the law for many years additional time to comply.
