FDA says it knew about deadly bacterial contamination at baby formula factory MONTHS before product recall

(Natural News) Roughly five months before an official recall was issued, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was already well aware of an alleged bacterial contamination issue at Mead Johnson’s infant formula production plant in Zeeland, Mich.

The agency recently admitted to such, revealing that the facility, which manufactures Enfamil ProSobee Simply Plant-Based Infant Formula, had been identified as containing Cronobacter bacteria.

An initial batch of formula was destroyed at that time, but another 145,000 cans of the stuff were released into the market with the FDA’s knowledge. A formal recall was issued five months later, and none of the recalled cans were found to contain Cronobacter, according to the FDA.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that Cronobacter “can be deadly for young infants.” Symptoms in babies include poor feeding, fever, low energy, excessive crying, seizures, spine swelling, and bloodstream infections.

“As part of the FDA’s oversight to ensure safe and nutritious infant formula, the agency’s more recent engagements with manufacturers through inspections and ongoing meetings has limited the scope of these recalls and minimized disruptions to the market,” an FDA spokesperson said about the recall.

(Related: While American mothers were having trouble finding scarcely available baby formula, fake president Joe Biden was sending what little there was down to the southern border for illegals to have.)

How come Cronobacter became such a problem during the coronavirus “pandemic?”

In a later statement, the FDA made a comparison to the more well-known Abbott recall, suggesting that the Johnson Mead one and others “are much narrower in scope, only impacting a few weeks of product with no additional facility closures.”


“Under current law, Mead Johnson was not required to alert the FDA of the positive test and choose [sic] to not alert the FDA to the positive test,” the agency also told Fox News.

The FDA also indicated that it is petitioning Congress for greater authority to require that companies report these kinds of things in the future so as to prevent recalls like this from having to occur.

“It was only during an unrelated inspection of the company that FDA discovered the positive test, and was told that analysis to the cause was ongoing,” an FDA spokesperson added in a statement to Fox Digital.

“The FDA has reviewed conditions during recent inspections of powdered infant formula manufacturers, including routine surveillance inspections, for-cause inspections to follow up on consumer complaints, and other interactions with manufacturers.”

As you may recall, 2021 was a really bad year for infant formula availability due to several recalls, including another involving Cronobacter at an Abbott Nutrition plant in Michigan. In that instance, at least four infants got sick from the product and two allegedly died.

The FDA compiled and released a 10-page report following the infant formula shortage that ensued, explaining that a whistleblower had complained about problems at the facility.

That same year, House Republicans launched an investigation into the FDA’s handling of the shortage, calling on FDA Commissioner Robert Califf to provide further details as to the agency’s “poor response” to the situation.

The FDA has since announced that it will not be firing any of its employees over the mishandling of the baby formula fiasco. Instead, the agency will “undergo an overhaul,” according to Fox News, which will include a “new, transformative vision,” Califf added.

The FDA’s regulatory authority will be consolidated under a new food safety plan called the “Human Foods Program.” How this new program will prevent situations like the baby formula recall from ever happening again remains unknown as the FDA has yet to produce any specific details about the plan.

Western finance is on its last legs: WATCH as the Health Ranger and Bob Moriarty discuss

Image: Western finance is on its last legs: WATCH as the Health Ranger and Bob Moriarty discuss

(Natural News) The Western financial system has created an illusion, or mirage, of wealth and prosperity – and that illusion-mirage is quickly coming to an end.

American Marine F-4B fighter pilot and Vietnam War veteran Bob Moriarty spoke with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, about this final chapter of the Western financial system during a recent Health Ranger Report that you will not want to miss – watch below:

“It’s time for people to educate themselves and make decisions for themselves (because) you can’t count on the government,” Moriarty stated at the beginning of the segment as a prologue to the things he would say after that, which may come as a shock to many.

“There’s a lot of people talking who literally don’t know what they’re talking about,” he explained, referring to the widespread misunderstandings about Western finance that are prevalent in the media headlines.

Michael Hudson, whom Moriarty described as the “best economic writer of today,” recently published a book called “The Collapse of Antiquity” that talks all about the parallels between what is happening to the United States and Europe today, and what happened to the debt-based systems that served as the foundation of finance in the Greek and Roman empires of times past.

“The dynamics of interest-bearing debt led to the rise of renter oligarchies in classical Greece and Rome causing economic polarization, widespread austerity, revolts, wars, and ultimately the collapse of Rome into serfdom and feudalism,” reads a portion of that book. “That collapse bequeathed to subsequent Western civilization a pro-creditor legal philosophy that has led to today’s creditor oligarchies.”


It turns out that the U.S. and Europe rely on this same flawed debt-based system whereby all “money” is created by banks that lend it into existence. Moriarty explained to Adams that banks create money by writing mortgages – and as long as there is interest charged, there is always more debt in existence than actual money.”

“At some point in time, you have to balance the books,” Moriarty explained about what we are now seeing happen as the debt bubble nears its inevitable burst.

(Related: A chief economist at Moody’s recently warned that “things are going to start to break” all across the financial system.)

The Russia-Ukraine conflict is all about money: the Western debt-based system versus the Eastern resource-based system

Just like in Babylonian times, today’s “kings,” i.e., presidents and prime ministers, are coming to the stark realization that if farmers lose their property because of the debt bubble bursting, then there will be no more food even for them to eat.

“You go back to Babylonian times, the kings realized that they couldn’t afford to have all farmers lose their property because they would starve and there would be nobody to grow food. We are in the exact same situation today,” Moriarty warned.

“The world is washed in a sea of debt, and when the Federal Reserve and the EU lowered interest rates to zero or even below zero, they created a ticking time bomb that as soon as they increased interest rates, the value of bonds plummeted.”

Not just banks but also the pension system is now at risk, as are insurance companies because they took on an asset that Moriarty says “should have been the safest and the most stable, which is government Treasury notes, and made it very unstable, which will lead to a total crash of the entire financial system.”

With civil wars now erupting in France, where Moriarty lives, as well as in Israel and elsewhere, he made sure to emphasize that it is “all related to money.”

“The Ukraine-Russian conflict isn’t about Russia and Ukraine; it’s really about the debt-based system of the West and the resource-based system of China and Russia,” Moriarty explained.

To stave off a potential Russian invasion, the UK would need “10 years warning,” admits top general

Image: To stave off a potential Russian invasion, the UK would need “10 years warning,” admits top general

(Natural News) Great Britain’s military is in such bad shape that it would take “five to 10 years,” according to a former top general, for the country to build up the resistance it would need to ward off a potential invasion by Russia.

General Sir Richard Barrons, who served as commander of the Joint Forces Command (JFC) – JFC has since been renamed to Strategic Command (StratCom) – from 2013 until his retirement in 2016, had a few choice words to say to the United Kingdom’s poor leadership about the matter.

“During the Cold War, the Army, at all times, was ready to fight at four hours’ notice,” Barrons told the media about how the UK used to be in terms of it defenses. “When the Cold War ended and there was no sense of existential risk to the UK, all of that was dismantled.”

“Now we would need five to 10 years’ notice of a Russian surprise attack to manage to deal with it. That’s not a cool place to be … It’s deeply disappointing.”

(Related: Last fall, we reported that British spies have been busy secretly building a “terror army” in Ukraine.)

The UK would run out of ammo in just one day, were Russia to invade

Currently, the armed forces of the UK have just 137,000 active military personnel, 5,015 armored vehicles, and 227 tanks. Compare this to the Russian Federation, which has nearly a million-and-a-half soldiers, more than 30,000 armored vehicles, and approximately 12,500 tanks.

As for the two nations’ naval assets, the British Royal Navy has just 70 vessels left in operation. Russia, conversely, has 605, or nearly nine times as many vessels.


Great Britain is no match, in other words, for Russia, the latter of which would easily trounce the monarchy and dash it to pieces, if it decided to do so, at a moment’s notice.

“Russia is clearly angry and rearming so their capability will be restored and when the shooting stops in Ukraine, Russia will blame the outcome on us,” the former commander further warned. “We are already in confrontation with Russia. Right now, we have chosen to do very little about it.”

The UK only has enough ammo on hand to last about one day in the event that Russia invades. It would be an easy win for President Vladimir Putin, in other words.

Over the next two years, the government of UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is planning to spend an additional £5 billion (more than $6.17 billion) on the country’s defense apparatus. This is well below the £11 billion (about $13.58 billion) that was requested by Defense Secretary Ben Wallace.

According to General Sir Richard, £5 billion is not nearly enough to reverse the planned cuts to the British army, which is expected to further decline in number by about 3,000, leaving just 73,000 troops in total.

Reports indicate that nearly all of that £5 billion in cash has already been assigned to pay for the upgrade of the UK’s nuclear-armed submarines, as well as to restock the country’s ammunition stores, which have been massively depleted due to arms shipments to Ukraine.

“It probably suggests the heart of government doesn’t really get it,” the former commander lamented. “The risks I and others see are not accepted by the prime minister and chancellor. They are content to spend our money on a whole range of other things and then worry about defense later.”

“We’re still working on the old model to sort out the NHS (National Health Service), migration, and potholes then, if we really must, we will keep defense bubbling along.”

Global fake food market projected to be worth up to $3 trillion in the near future

Image: Global fake food market projected to be worth up to $3 trillion in the near future

(Natural News) Despite the recent drop in sales of fake meat, the entire fake food industry is still expected to grow, with some experts suggesting the entire market could be worth up to $3 trillion.

This is according to management consulting firm McKinsey & Company, which claimed that as much as 60 percent of all materials inputted into the economy could be produced from biological materials. This includes some of the most popular fake food products in the market today, such as fake meat, fake milk and fake fat. (Related: Fake meat companies are failing as consumers abandon processed plant-based alternatives to real meat.)

“As much as 60 percent of the physical inputs to the global economy could, in principle, be produced biologically – about one-third of these inputs are biological materials (wood or animals bred for food) and the remaining two-thirds are nonbiological (plastics or fuels) but could potentially be produced or substituted using biological materials,” wrote the firm in its report.

The report further noted that there are already some very prevalent players in the fake meat, milk and fat industries. These include the Bill Gates-backed cultured meat producers Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat, and Perfect Day, which produces synthetically-cultivated dairy alternatives. Gates has also invested heavily in BIOMILQ, a biotech startup creating synthetic lab-made human milk for infant consumption. There is also Cultured Oil, which produces fake cooking oil.

Dr. Joseph Mercola of Children’s Health Defense warned that more and more fake food products are likely to enter the market, with corporations and startups hiding the fact that they are selling synthesized food products using industry buzzwords like “precision fermentation.”


“They’ve obliterated the precautionary principle, as the long-term outcomes [of fake food] are completely unknown, to produce fake meats, fake fats and fake milk,” warned Mercola. “But it’s all serving the underlying agenda, which is total control and world domination. There’s no easier way to achieve this than by taking control of the food supply.”

Fake meat market still expected to grow despite recent drop in sales

The fake meat industry is expected to remain the leader in the burgeoning fake food market. One report from Facts and Factors, a market research organization, noted that the global fake meat market is expected to grow to $15.8 billion in value by 2028, more than doubling its $7.5 billion value in 2021.

The compounded annual growth rate of the food market is expected to be around 15 percent per year until 2028. The growth is said to be largely driven by concerns about the health impacts associated with meat consumption, especially red and processed meat consumption. These concerns include the increased risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and colorectal cancer.

The synthetic meat industry’s biggest market is North America, with burgers made out of lab-grown meat being the leading revenue-generating products. Chicken alternatives have the largest market share.

Over the past year, frozen products have become the most popular fake meat product, accounting for 56.65 percent of total revenue. Soy-based products also have the largest market share of fake meat products at 48 percent, despite an increase in the use of alternative ingredients such as pea protein.

The report further noted that a rise in the number of companies selling fake meat could help speed up the rise in the industry’s value. Other factors that can influence growth include mergers, acquisitions, collaborations and joint ventures between companies.

The main factors that could prevent continued growth in the fake meat market are a backlash against lab-grown meats and meat alternatives due to health concerns and if sales continue falling.

This expected growth is still pennies to the size of the Big Food market. The global beef market alone is valued at around $415 billion and is expected to grow up to $604 billion by 2029. But the food sector does appear uncomfortable with the traction that lab-grown and synthetic meats are gaining.

Big Government, Big Business colluding to CRUSH smaller competitors

Image: Big Government, Big Business colluding to CRUSH smaller competitors

(Natural News) ShelfAware CEO Andrew Johnson denounced both Big Government and Big Business for colluding to crush small businesses through regulations and taxes.

“We have this corrupt capitalistic system at this point,” he told “Conversations that Matter” host Alex Newman. “It’s gotten so corrupt with our political landscape that they’re making choices to benefit the Big Money and they’re just getting paid to do it.”

According to the CEO of the industrial supply chain automation provider, small enterprises in the country are wildly overtaxed and over-regulated. “You take all the risk and you get very little of the upside. Any policies from Washington, D.C. have just ended up as a disaster for small businesses,” Johnson said.

Moreover, the ShelfAware CEO pointed out that the power is concentrated at the federal level in the form of “tongue-in-cheek regulations” sold to the American public. These regulations only hurt small businesses at the end of the day, he emphasized. Johnson’s remarks referenced the recent ruling by the Securities and Exchange Commission mandating publicly traded companies to disclose how their operations play a role in “climate change.” (Related: Instead of cracking down on actual Wall Street corruption, the SEC is instead demanding that corporations assess how climate change is impacting them.)

Johnson also advised against believing mainstream media narratives on government and business.

“Quit reading just the things that Fox News, CNN or BBC throw in your feed. Dive deeper into some of these things and seek sources that aren’t spotlighted or platformed by the Big Media because those are all curated. You need to find intelligent people that are somewhat off the record on shows like that,” he urged the viewers.


De-globalization a huge opportunity for US manufacturing

During his conversation with Newman, Johnson expressed optimism about the world gaining the opportunity to break free of global supply chains. The Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic set up these trends, and they are only set to accelerate as the world’s economic system collapses.

“It might sound doomsday, but I think it’s actually presenting a great opportunity for the American manufacturing sector, and seek some new investment from investors in our American infrastructure and be more American-centric as a society,” he said.

The ShelfAware CEO also expressed skepticism over the American political sphere’s efforts to push the narrative of China taking over Taiwan, adding that he does not fear it happening. In response to Newman’s question about what is currently the biggest threat, Johnson answered one word: globalization.

“When we disrupt all of these supply chains, which is a large part of what I do – it’s like grassroots, front-line supply chain work. You cannot realign those supply chains quickly,” he explained.

“We have a current system that ran since World War II – after we effectively killed a big percentage of the world’s population, leveled cities [and] reset the whole infrastructure of the world. After WWII, we had basically a long period of time where the U.S. was the only superpower that policed the world’s waterways and set up global supply chains.”

Survey: 43% of Americans think acceptance of transgenderism has gone too far

Image: Survey: 43% of Americans think acceptance of transgenderism has gone too far

(Natural News) Forty-three percent of Americans think acceptance of transgenderism has gone too far, according to a new poll funded by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and conducted by independent social research organization NORC at the University of Chicago.

The survey, which had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points, engaged 1,019 people between March 1-13 and found that more than four in every 10 respondents say that the society has been too far accepting of transgender people. Thirty-three percent believe society has not gone far enough and 23 percent say society is “about right.”

Republicans (75 percent) are far more likely to say society has gone too far in accepting transgenderism than Democrats (15 percent). Nearly half of the independents (47 percent) echo the sentiments of the Republicans. (Related: Transgender HHS official confirms that Biden fully supports child mutilations.)

A poll conducted by NBC News about the same topic last year showed that 33 percent of Americans thought America “has gone too far in accepting transgender people.” It was 26 percent in 2021, 33 percent in 2016 and 24 percent in 2015.

The recent poll mirrored the results of a recent survey on the American public’s sentiments about male-to-female (MTF) transgender athletes playing in women’s sports. Fifty-six percent of Americans believe transgender athletes should “only play on teams that match the sex assigned at their birth,” while only 17 percent say they should be able to “play on teams that match their current gender identity.” Twenty-five percent are unsure.


MTF trans athletes banned from competing in female world ranking events

World Athletics, the world governing body for athletics, favors the stance of the majority. It recently announced the ban on transgender women from competing in the female category at international athletics events.

Lord Coe, the body’s president, said no transgender athlete who had gone through male puberty would be permitted to compete in female world ranking competitions starting March 31. He added that the decision was “guided by the overarching principle which is to protect the female category.”

World Athletics used to allow transgender women to compete in female category provided that they reduce their amount of blood testosterone to a maximum of 5nmol/L and stay under this threshold continuously for a period of 12 months before the competition.

“Decisions are always difficult when they involve conflicting needs and rights between different groups, but we continue to take the view that we must maintain fairness for female athletes above all other considerations,” Coe said. “We will be guided in this by the science around physical performance and male advantage which will inevitably develop over the coming years. As more evidence becomes available, we will review our position, but we believe the integrity of the female category in athletics is paramount.”

The Council agreed to set up a working group for 12 months to “further consider the issue of transgender inclusion.”

An independent chair will lead the group. It will include up to three council members, two athletes from the Athletes’ Commission, a transgender athlete, three representatives from World Athletics’ member federations and representatives from the World Athletics health and science department.
