‘Cartoon test-tub babies’: Are they real?
The parents of a baby who was given a test tube filled with fake milk have come forward to accuse the manufacturer of misleading the public.
The baby was given the plastic tube in February at the hospital where she had been undergoing an operation to remove her gallbladder, and her mother is suing the manufacturer, Lister Associates.
The test tube is filled with a mixture of milk, sugar and flour, and it is meant to help the baby develop a natural appetite for sugar, according to the family.
The family have now launched a campaign, in which they have posted photos of the fake tube, and have been inundated with angry messages.
“We just don’t understand why Lister was in a position where they were selling us this product and not paying for it, so I thought, ‘We have to make a statement’,” she told CNN.
She is now using the money raised to donate the milk and food to charity, but said she is worried the company will continue to use the test tube as a marketing tool.
“I’m worried that we are not going to see any milk and we’re not going have the real thing,” she said.
“Lister is selling the test-tubes for their brand of products and that’s what they’re doing, so they’re selling their product.”
The company said the milk is “made by a leading manufacturer and does not contain any lactose or other allergens”.
“The milk is designed to be used with a child and not for a toddler, for example, or a baby, or an older child,” the company said.
It added that the test tubes are not meant to be a substitute for regular formula and that Lister is not responsible for any health or safety issues which could arise.
“The testing was performed to ensure that the product and its components were safe and that the milk was safe for use by a child under six years of age.
We have been very transparent about the testing process and how it was conducted,” it said.’
We want the truth to come out’The family said they were disappointed by the results, but that the tests were being carried out to test whether the milk would be safe for a baby.
“For us, the real issue is that the results were not clear, so we’re very frustrated that the result was not positive,” she added.
“What’s going on here is a huge breach of trust and we don’t want the company to keep selling this product, we want the facts to come in and we want to know what’s happening here.”
If they don’t, we’ll be going to court.
“This company is a fraud and they’re deceiving the public.”
The family, who want the product to be banned from shelves in the UK, say they are also concerned that they will not be able to donate to charity.
“When you buy this product for your baby, it is a test that is designed for them to make sure that they can make a real appetite for milk and that they don ‘t become overweight,” they said.
The product has since been removed from shelves.
Lister said in a statement to CNN that it was not aware of any issues with the product.
“Our Milk Test Tubes are designed to help to develop a child’s natural appetite and appetite for sweet, savoury and fatty foods, while providing a balanced diet with a balance of protein and minerals,” the statement said.
But the family said it was concerned that the company’s tests could still be used to make artificial sweeteners.
“These test tubes contain ingredients which have been linked to cancer and heart disease, so it’s very worrying that these tests are still being used to produce a number of different artificial sweetener products and are being sold as milk or formula,” they wrote.
“It’s concerning that there are companies that sell these tests in the market without proper testing procedures and who continue to sell these products despite there being serious health risks.”
And finally, it’s concerning because if Lister has been making a product which is not safe for any child under the age of six, they will continue selling these products and the products will continue being marketed to children as a safe way of nourishing a baby.
