Synutra International, Inc. (Nasdaq: SYUT), a leading infant formula company in China and a producer, marketer and seller of nutritional products for infants, children and adults, today released the following public comment in response to a media report in China which linked hormone levels in the Company's milk powder with alleged premature development and sexual precocity.

Mr. Liang Zhang, Chairman and CEO of Synutra stated, "Since the initial speculation in reports that our products were responsible for premature development and precocity in children, there has been a tremendous increase in commentary in the press relating to this incident such as the People's Daily and Bloomberg. The media is increasingly relaying a more balanced take on the reality that there is no scientific evidence supporting the allegation that our products are responsible for these claims."
