An advertisement for Dutch Lady Vivinal GOS milk

FrieslandCampina Vietnam has recalled around 96 percent of its Dutch Lady Vivinal GOS milk which reportedly caused allergic reactions in some children who consumed the product, said the Vietnam Food Administration (VFA). However, some 6,000 products remain in the market.


The VFA recently ordered the company to withdraw the remaining products and publicize warnings about the milk in the media.


Vivinal GOS is advertised as containing GOS (Galacto Oligosacharide), a natural fiber in dairy that helps enhance absorption of nutrients and stimulate healthy growth.


Some 21 toddlers in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi were hospitalized in recent weeks with rashes, breathing problems, and stomach upset, allegedly after drinking Dutch Lady Vivinal GOS milk.
