No cause for alarm over baby formula nanoparticles claims

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:14 pm on 3 July 2017

New Zealand news outlets have been reporting on research, that 'potenitally toxic' nanoparticles, have been found in baby formula. Friends of the Earth commissioned independent laboratory analysis, and published that it found nanoparticles in six infant formulas tested. The group said they found calcium phosphate crystals in the formula and have made calls to recall some products.

But scientist, Michelle Dickinson, aka nanogirl, says the claims are nothing to worry about and it's just scaring people.
