Infant nutrition is top priority for the FDA.

The agency has released new rules to ensure formula is safe and healthy.

Manufacturers must prove their product includes the proper amount of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. They will also have to test for contaminants like salmonella.

Most already practice these rules, but the FDA is putting them in writing.
