Three baby formula brands have been penalised after products imported from China were found to contain more than the permitted content of transfatty acids, which can cause heart disease.

The three brands, Baby Club, Super and Yill, were also found to have no license for trade in Vietnam, according to the Health Ministry’s Administration for Food Safety and Hygiene.

The administration has been contacting relevant agencies in China and Hong Kong for more information so that it can update customers in Vietnam.-VNA
