The “stain” on the reputation
As tell many of the reviews, the mixture “Humana” is very difficult to find in pharmacies and baby stores. Pediatricians almost never suggest this manufacturer. More than a decade ago, the reputation of the German brand was damaged during the scandal that took place in Israel.
In 2003, two babies died and dozens more were maimed for life because of a mixture based on soy. The investigation showed that the composition did not have the necessary amount of vitamin B1, which plays an important role in the development of the child's body. A manufacturer of ingredients for mixtures “Remedia cimjet” was Humana. Despite the fact that the German brand were not responsible for the formula “Remedia”, the obligation to pay compensation to the victims was accepted in full.
Since then, Humana has consistently been associated with death of infants, not bothering to search the details of a terrible tragedy. However, the responses of those parents who understood the circumstances and decided to feed your baby baby food from Germany, put the formula consistently high ratings.
