My July 19, 2016, Email to Abbott Laboratories Regarding Infant Formulas/Ensure

To:  Abbott Laboratories

Date:  July 19, 2016

Re:  Ensure Nutritional Products/Infant Formulas

Since 88-92% of corn is GMO and approximately. 94% of soy is GMO, do the Ensure products contain GMO corn and soy, thereby possibly containing glyphosate? Do you test your products for the presence of glyphosate? In addition, many corn-allergic infants have been diagnosed with "failure to thrive" due to the lack of corn-free formulas. Is Abbott Laboratories working on a corn-free formulation for these struggling babies? Their doctors cannot recommend any safe, corn-free alternative source of nutrition. Thank you.

Update:  I received a reply from Abbott Labs this afternoon (7/21/16); and they requested that I call them to discuss my email.  I'll keep you posted.
