Metals like lead, arsenic, and mercury can be found in some baby food products. This lawsuit is the result of a class action on behalf of families who have children with toxic levels of these metals.

How can I avoid having my baby food tested for heavy metals?
A lawsuit was filed against the United States Food and Drug Administration. The plaintiffs of the lawsuit claim that baby foods have been contaminated with heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and mercury. If you are thinking about having your baby food tested for heavy metals, there is a wide range of products that this test cannot detect because it only detects metals found in a certain concentration.
