Plea Bargains in Remedia Infant Deaths, Disease


The Lod District Court approved, Thursday afternoon, a plea bargain in the 2003 deaths and brain disease case involving the lack of vitamin B1 in the Remedia baby formula in Israel, contrary to the list of ingredients on the label.

Gid'on Landsberger, the Israeli chief executive officer of the German-based company will be convicted of causing an act that could spread disease and do 400 hours of community service. The two-and-a-half-year sentence of food technician Frederick Black for involuntary manslaughter will be reduced to one-and-a-half years.
