Nestle Barracks has decided to withdraw, from the Italian market alone, 30 million boxes of milk for infants, after finding in the milk respectively a chemical used in the label printing process.
Nestle also decided to withdraw milk from the markets of France, Spain and Portugal.
The alert came at the end of June, when a sample of baby milk from Nestle brand showed traces of isopropyl thioxanthone, a chemical used in photographic and typographic techniques.
The substance is used to print the inscription that appears on the cardboard boxes, but it is not known how, the substance has also entered milk.
It is not clear the risk that the substance represents to the child's health.


The Italian forest police, which is responsible for agriculture, got involved in this issue in October, because no one seemed to give it any importance.
Initially, the police tried to confiscate two million liters of baby milk, but Nestle has now agreed to withdraw from the market 30 million liters.
