WASHINGTON -- The federal government is investigating allegations of price fixing made against makers of baby formula used extensively by state programs.Infant formula is a key ingredient of the food packages given to low-income families under the Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants and Children, or WIC. The program accounts for one-third of all sales of infant formula in the United States.When infant formula prices go up, the cost of a WIC food package increases, fewer people can be served and some people have to be removed from the rolls, "so there is real consumer injury," said Kevin J. Arquit, director of the Federal Trade Commission's Bureau of Competition.

Martek Biosciences Corp. said yesterday that it had reached a licensing deal with Sandoz Nutrition SA that will put the Columbia firm's baby formula additive into the formula the Swiss-based giant sells in Europe.Martek did not give a value of the deal, but said Sandoz is the sixth big formula manufacturer to agree to use Martek's Formulaid, a complex of fatty acids derived from microalgae that scientists believe speeds up brain development in infants.Chemical components of Formulaid are present naturally in breast milk but are not part of major commercial baby formulas.

Formed more than 17 years ago, Martek Biosciences Corp. finally caught the attention of American parents, who bought enough baby formula bolstered by the company's algae--derived nutritional supplement to give the company its first profit. Columbia-based Martek makes the nutritional oils, known as ARA and DHA, from microalgae that it says are important to infant brain and eyesight development. But until recently, the company sold most of its products only overseas. For the past six months, three licensees have been selling products with Martek's oils in the United States.

What do you get when your company develops a product that boosts a baby's IQ? A bonanza, that's what. Just two years after hitting U.S. store shelves, baby formula enriched with Martek Biosciences Corp.'s patented nutritional oils have grabbed nearly 60 percent of the $3.5 billion domestic market for infant formula. Three out of five baby bottles are filled with formula that includes the Columbia company's additive, and that's important, doctors say, because a significant share of babies get their nutrition from formula, not mother's milk.

OK The Walking Dead , I see you, doing your thing. This Sunday night's episode was by no means earth shattering, but in keeping with the style of season three, there was plenty to satisfy us fans and keep us coming back next week: humans were killed (albeit inconsequential humans), questions were answered (Where is Carol? Who was on the phone?) and the plot was advanced. We were left with Michonne strolling up to the prison fence, injured and covered with a camouflage of zombie entrails, and carrying a supermarket basket full of powdered baby formula.

The old joke says parents carry pictures of their children in their wallets - where their money used to be. Babies are expensive. But many parents spend far more than they need to. The reason is easy to guess - having a baby is an emotional event in life. It's common for couples, especially first-time parents, to develop the attitude, "Only the best for my baby." Where emotion is involved, poor spending choices often follow. "Marketers take advantage of that," said Kimberly Danger, author of 1,000 Best Baby Bargains.
