    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall for a plant-based infant formula after it was found to have not met nutrition and labeling requirements the product had previously advertised.

    The agency requested Moor Herbs of Detroit, Michigan to inform any customers who purchased their “Healthy Beauty” Angel Formula to stop using the product and to either dispose of it or return it for a refund.

    Testing conducted by the FDA reportedly showed the formula contained higher amounts of iron, sodium, and potassium than the maximum allowed by the agency. The product was also found to not contain vitamin D which could potentially lead to Rickets, also known as Osteomalacia. The disease causes children’s bones to soften and weaken due to a lack of vitamin D.
