Sale of Mothers Milk can Cause Infections and Conditions: FDA
Experts with the US Food and Drug Administration have expressed concerns about the quality of milk being sold by people over the internet. A public advisory has already been released by the Federal body regarding the safety worries of milk being provided through this channel.
The warning comes as online forums like OnlytheBreast and EastonFeets have been encouraging mothers with excessive milk to donate their milk or sell it to mother who might not be producing as much milk. Though, the FDA has felt that as some women might not have been properly screened for any infectious diseases, the fed babies do run a risk of getting contaminated with a condition.
A release by the FDA has further informed that the milk might not have been processed and that it might have not gone through the requisite checks in order to ensure its safety, and that is why it was not advisable for new mums to opt for the milk.
Talking about the recent news, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant Sam Doak informed that she was well aware of the practice of women sharing their milk. She further added that according to La Leche League, another mothers’ milk is the second best to the real mother’s milk, while formula bottoms the list.
