DT Friday Freakout: Breast Milk Dot Com Edition

It's the Daddy Types Friday Freakout, a roundup of headlines from the worlds of health, science, and parenting, bottled up and delivered all at once to ruin your weekend instead of your entire week:


  • A survey found 10% of the breast milk bought online was cut with cow's milk up to 10%. [nih via npr]

  • A survey also found that none of the breast milk bought online arrived frozen, and half arrived above refrigerated temperature (4C/39F). [same]

  • A survey also found that 75% of breast milk bought online was contaminated with bacteria. [npr, 2013]

  • A survey of the doctors who worked on the survey of buying breast milk online would probably find that they would recommend against buying from an unknown or unscreened source. [just guessin']

  • I will tell you what freaks ME out: a giant Sabra hummus recall because of listeria. We are definitely buying local for the time being. [check your sku atfda; via reuters/huffpo via someone on twitter, freaking me out]

  • Purvi Patel was sentenced to 20 years in prison for "feticide" in Indiana. She had a miscarriage about 30 weeks into her pregnancy. [washpost]
