On page 189 of the August, 1958, issue, the infant food product Similac was referred to as a "low-sodium milk." On page 376 of the September issue, it was referred to as a "low-calcium formula." The manufacturer has pointed out that, although this product is lower in both sodium and calcium content than undiluted whole milk or evaporated milk reconstituted 1:1, it does not warrant either of these categorizations. They emphasize that neither sodium nor calcium has been actively removed during its preparation.
