Baby food from several of the country’s largest manufacturers are “tainted” with toxic heavy metals, according to a detailed new government report issued by the Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy Committee on Oversight and Reform, U.S. House of Representatives.
The report, released Thursday, February 4, says those baby foods have “significant levels” of substances including lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury. The metals can be especially dangerous to babies’ and toddlers’ brain development.
