Mead Johnson loses certification scrap in India
Infant nutrition giant Mead Johnson has lost a legal battle over formula labelling in India.

The Delhi High Court, the court on Monday rejected a plea filed by the company’s Thai subsidiary, Mead Johnson Nutrition Thailand, that it should be able to continue using a certification mark from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

BIS had ordered the infant product manufacturer to stop using its certification mark for infant milk products sold in India after detecting the use of unauthorised milk powdersafter an inspection of the company’s Thai facility.

BIS said the base powder and spray dried milk powder were from a third party and not authorised and therefore withdrew its certification.

FoodNavigator-Asia contacted BIS but no clarification ws provided as to why the situation was not detected at earlier inspections.

While rejected Mead's appeal, the court did direct BIS to consider any fresh evidence provided by Mead.

Mead Johnson Thailand provided no comment at the time of publication.
