Experts to examine kids allergic to Dutch Lady milk

Experts from Hanoi will arrive in Ho Chi Minh City to examine five children who allegedly suffered allergic reactions after drinking Dutch Lady Vivinal GOS milk made by FrieslandCampina Vietnam, a deputy head of the Vietnam Food Administration said on October 21.

Mr. Hoang Thuy Tien said the experts from the National Institute of Nutrition, Bach Mai Hospital, and the administration would try to discover the cause of the allergic reaction.

The city’s Preventive Medicine Center has  taken milk samples for testing, according to center deputy director Nguyen Dac Tho.

FrieslandCampina Vietnam has claimed that there is no scientific evidence linking the children’s condition with its milk.
