Enfamil Baby Products Halal or Haram??

Excerpt from Meadjohnson website, makers of Enfamil group of baby products..

Are Nutramigen® A+® and Pregestimil® A+® kosher and halal?

Nutramigen® A+® and Pregestimil® A+® are not kosher or halal.

The casein protein is hydrolyzed or broken down by an enzyme process using pork pancreatic enzyme. Very little of the enzyme remains in the final product in fact, pork contributes an insignificant percentage of the prepared formula. If Nutramigen® A+® and Pregestimil® A+® are medically necessary for your baby, some rabbis provide exceptions for use of the product.
