Court convicts former technologist in baby formula affair

The Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday convicted former Remedia top technologist Frederick Black of negligent homicide, acquitted former CEO Gideon Landsberger of negligent homicide, while convicting him of a minor crime and fully acquitted former owner Moshe Miller in the 2003 Remedia baby formula affair.
The three officials were all accused of negligent homicide and committing acts likely to cause disease as well as other crimes.
The partial conviction and partial acquittals are at best a mixed result for the families of the three babies who died and the around 20 babies who suffered serious harm caused by the fact that the Remedia formula did not include Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), even though the cans stated that they did.
Remedia received the formula from a German-based company called Humana Milchunion, which makes baby food.
