Arsenic, lead, and other heavy metals shouldn't be showing up in the food young children eat. But alarmingly, four of the top baby food manufacturers have knowingly sold products with high levels of toxic heavy metals.
These companies should never have let these products on store shelves to begin with. But the best way to ensure it doesn't happen again is to close the regulatory gaps that allowed it to happen.
We need federal across-the-board limits on toxic heavy metals in baby food to ensure our children's food isn't putting their health at risk.
