As per label language, PediaSmart® Soy is free of dairy ingredients. This product is tested for milk allergens on each lot we manufacture.
In addition, all equipment used to manufacturer PediaSmart ® soy is cleaned, sanitized and flushed according to current good manufacturing (CGMP) procedures defined in U.S. law. PediaSmart ® is manufactured in a FDA and USDA inspected plant. The FDA routinely picks up samples of both products and tests them to ensure it meets all food safety and label claims.
PediaSmart® Soy is labeled “manufactured on dairy equipment” strictly to meet Jewish religion kosher certification rules. These rules have no bearing on U.S. law where allergen contamination is mandated in the Code of Federal Regulations and strictly enforced by the Food & Drug Administration. Kosher certification for Jewish religious reasons is not related to FDA enforced laws serving to protect consumers in the U.S.
