What Toxic Metals Have Been Found in Baby Food?

Toxic heavy metals have been found in products from major U.S. baby food manufacturers, including arsenic, lead, and mercury. High exposure to these heavy metals has been linked to severe negative neurological effects in children, impacting brain development and causing long-term neurological effects. 

Why are heavy metals in baby food dangerous?

Toxic heavy metals are dangerous to human health, according to the Food and Drug Administration and World Health Organization. Babies and children are especially vulnerable to the neurotoxic effects of heavy metals, including: 

Inorganic arsenic | Lead | Cadmium | Mercury

Exposure at even low levels can cause serious, often irreversible damage to the brain development of infants and can affect long-term brain function. Baby food products tainted with heavy metal are sold for infants as young as four months old.

Which Baby Food Brands Contain Toxic Metals?

A U.S. House Subcommittee of Economic and Consumer Policy review of internal documents and test results from 7 of the largest U.S. baby food manufacturers found high levels of toxic metals in both conventional and organic baby food products, including:
