Over seven baby food companies are currently dealing with lawsuits filed by outraged parents

The report of the U.S. House of Representatives listed seven major baby food manufacturers from the country that were found responsible for failing to test their finished products for heavy metals. As a consequence, the level of neurotoxins in their baby food greatly exceeded the permissible limit. There is a strong link between frequent exposure to heavy metals that occurs via ingestion and autism spectrum disorders. For this reason, parents whose children came to struggle with a neurodevelopmental disorder took legal action against the baby food companies, which include the following:

  • Beech-Nut
  • Earth's Best Organic
  • Gerber
  • Happy Family Organics
  • Plum Organics
  • Kroger
  • Parent's Choice
  • Mum-Mum
  • Cream of Wheat
  • Kitchdee Organic
  • Similac
  • Healthy Times Organic

However, it is essential to know that there are numerous other smaller baby food companies that also manufacture products with high concentrations of heavy metals. For this reason, the report of the Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy in the House of Representatives also calls for the following:

  • mandatory heavy metals testing in finished products, not just in ingredients
  • writing the concentration of heavy metals on the label of each product
  • the FDA setting maximum limits for each heavy metal to be allowed in baby food
