Nestle says Gerber products in China are safe, rejects group’s post

Nestle said on Tuesday its Gerber baby cereal products made and sold in China are safe and it had reported to authorities an association that advised its members, in a post on social media, to stop selling the products. “All Gerber products produced in China comply with China’s food safety standards on complementary foods for infants and babies,” the Swiss multinational food and drink conglomerate said in a statement sent to Reuters. Chinese social media users on the weekend shared screenshots of a Feb. 6 notice issued by an association called the Maternal and Child Industry Committee of China Commercial Economy Society, which said that Gerber products contain toxic metals “to a dangerous degree”.
