Health Canada's Proposal to Lower the Maximum Levels of Lead in Concentrated Infant Formula and Infant Formula When Ready-to-Serve in the List of Contaminants and Other Adulterating Substances in Foods - Reference Number: NOP/AVP C-2019-1. Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 5
Health Canada has conducted a scientific assessment which supports lowering the maximum level (ML) for lead in all types of infant formula that would apply to the food on an 'as consumed' basis. Health Canada is proposing to consolidate the two existing MLs for lead in concentrated infant formula and infant formula when ready-to-serve into a single, lower ML of 0.01 ppm. The purpose of this communication is to publically announce the Department's intention in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for any inquiries or for those wishing to submit any new scientific information relevant to Health Canada's scientific assessment.
