(ECNS) - French food group Danone’s new Aptamil baby milk formula, which has made some infants unwell in Britain, has not been imported to China, according to the General Administration of Customs.

Danone UK has made quality and safety checks after parents filed complaints on the brand's Aptaclub UK Facebook page following recent changes to the formulas.

Aptamil had changed the recipes of three products: Aptamil First Infant Milk powder (stage 1), Aptamil Follow On Milk powder (stage 2) and Aptamil Growing Up Milk powders (stages 3 and 4), according to previous media report.

The General Administration of Customs said investigations showed Danone provided the product to the European market and its product has not been imported into China through general trade channels or cross-border e-commerce. 

The administration has reminded Chinese consumers to be prudent in buying overseas products through direct mail.
