FTC challenges Gerber allergy-protection claims in court

Read the FTC's explanation.  The FDA approved an extremely limited claim about very sketchy scientific evidence, and Gerber converted that into "the first and only infant formula that meets the criteria for a FDA Qualified Health Claim," with accompanying gold badge, while advertising that its formula could guard against children developing allergies.  That was probably a bad idea.
