Overview and metadata sections
Infant Formula Action Coalition (INFACT), a citizen action group formed in the United States in 1977; "committed to stopping life-threatening abuses of transnational corporations"; INFACT's first campaign (1977-1984) was aimed at changing the corporate marketing practices of infant formula in the United States and in Third World countries which led to the boycott of the Swiss-giant Nestlé Corporation; its second major campaign (1984-1993) was aimed at exposing corporate connections to the nuclear weapons build-up, which led to a boycott against the General Electric Company; INFACT changed its name in 2004 or 2005 to Corporate Accountability International.
