The maker of organically labeled infant formula is being sued over allegations that its formula wasn't actually organic.

The lawsuit claims about 26 of the ingredients, which is more than half of the 49 ingredients listed, are not allowed in organic food. The suit said the ingredients were “irradiated substances, synthetic compounds, or produced from hazardous substances.”

The plaintiffs claim Abbot listed the product as organic in order to get consumers to purchase it, and to increase its own sales and profits.
