Simply Thick has recently changed their product, packaging and now has a warning label that states “Do not use in infants or children without consulting with a physician”. When contacting the company, they stated the following: “Our recipe changed slightly, but the new formula shouldn’t really have any more/less effect than the previous formula. But, because our product is intended for adults and not children, we recommend that a physician be consulted.” Due to this new warning, product and packaging, is your institution still going to use this product? If not what are you using to thicken?
