Yes, this is a sponsored post, but I wouldn’t discuss it, if I didn’t feel passionately about it.
First to be said: You are NOT a bad mom if you use generic brand anything.
Yes, you want to give your child the best of everything, but seeing a name brand doesn’t mean it’s the best, or that there’s not an equivalent that’s more affordable.
We all do what we can to get along, and the more kids you have the tighter the budget gets.
Here’s the scoop:
Store brand infant formulas won a major victory this week when a U.S. Circuit Court upheld a $13.5 million false advertising claim against Enfamil maker Mead Johnson.
I have nothing bad to say about Enfamil formula itself. Their formula is great. But it’s not the only brand out there, and definitely not as nice to your wallet.
The case was based on the argument by PBM Products, Perrigo’s store brand infant formula business, that Enfamil’s advertisements of superiority to store brand formulas were false and misleading because store brand formulas offer the same nutrients at the same levels as Enfamil.
PBM Products provides most store brands including Walmart, Sam’s Club, Target, Kroger, Walgreens, and other major retailers.
Unless Enfamil could find serious manufacturing/ ingredient sourcing issues with store brand formulas, I’m not switching from the one I use. And yes, it’s unfair of them to claim that they are better because they are bigger.
All formulas that are sold in the United States are subject to inspection and the exacting standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“This legislation vested FDA with the authority to ensure that all infant formula products sold in the United States provide the necessary levels of identified nutrients required for the growth of healthy babies.”
"The Court has made it clear that national brand and store brand suppliers are entitled to fairly compete and advertising abuses will not be tolerated," said Perrigo Chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa in a statement.
Can’t we all just play nicely? I feel like I’m talking to my kids.
