SimplyThick Can Be Harmful For Infants

SimplyThick is quite popular among families with babies. However, the Food and Drug Administration has recently warned over the use of SimplyThick. The US regulators have informed that about seven infants have succumbed to death after having fed with SimplyThick.

It has also come to light that about 21 infants have received adverse health problems because of the SimplyThick. The product SimplyThick is given to infants for helping them in swallowing food and avoiding vomit. The food product is also used by adults for curing swallowing related problems.

The Food and Drug Administration had issued warning against SimplyThick in 2011 as well. It has come to light that the administration of SimplyThick can cause necrotizing enterocolitis, a tissue inflammation that could even lead to death.

While issuing warning, the Food and Drug Administration asked the parents to be careful with the food products while feeding their children. The SEO of SimplyThick, John Holahan said, “…We continue to advise following FDA’s previous recommendation that SimplyThick brand thickener not be used with or given to babies who were born before 37 weeks”. It is hoped that the recommendations will help families in choosing right baby product for their infants.
