A mother in Texas was completely shocked and horrified to find a worm in her infant’s baby formula, bought on Amazon.
Here’s What Happened
An Austin, Texas mother said that she found a moving, living worm in the baby formula she had been using to feed her baby.
“I was scooping up some formula and then I noticed something black inside the powder,” Jessica Chavez told KXAN.
“So, I got it out, and it was moving. That’s when I noticed it was a worm.”
She said she purchased the formula, Enfamil NueroPro Gentlease, on Amazon. She then called the company and was offered a refund.
“At Reckitt/Mead Johnson we take these complaints very seriously,” the parent company said, via KXAN. “We received the consumer complaint, have been in touch with the consumer directly, and are moving quickly to investigate the situation.”
Chavez said her baby has been suffering from diarrhea and plans to have it tested for parasites, and is suspicious if it’s because of the tainted and unhealthy formula.
“I just want it to be spread out to moms,” Chavez said, via KXAN. “It’s shocking…and…it’s really disgusting to know that there’s worms in there.”
