We are pleading with moms and dads to read and follow the instructions on their formulas of choice.””If money is an issue, parents must understand that store brand infant formulas cost up to half the price of comparable national brands,” added Levine. “And the FDA sets the nutritional and quality standards for all infant formulas, so store brand formulas have to meet the same strict guidelines as national brands.”PBM is a leading supplier of infant formula sold throughout the world; its commitment to research and development ensures that all of its formulas are safe, high quality, and offer the latest advances in nutrition.
