22 infant milk brands to 'black list' from BFAD

MANILA, Philippines - The Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD) added Wednesday 22 brands of infant milk powder to its "black list" of melamine-tainted products to avoid.

In a newspaper ad on the Philippine Star, the BFAD said this brought to 24 the number of products that consumers should avoid and report to authorities.

"Beware of these products! Alagaan ang kalusugan (Protect our health). If you see any of these products please call the BFAD (at) 8425606, 8070721, 8070725," it said in its message.

The BFAD said the 22 products were based on an advisory from the Philippine embassy in Beijing.
