According to HaitianFamilies.org, the organization purchased their weekly supply of powdered formula/milk and distributed it to the families.
A few days later, they said that they had received calls from many families with kids that had gotten sick. The organization said they learned that the milk had been contaminated with microscopic bugs and eggs.
