Statement: Toxic metals found in baby food
WASHINGTON -- A report released Thursday by a U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee said four of the seven largest baby food manufacturers have sold baby food with “significant levels of toxic heavy metals” dating back to at least late 2019.
The Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy, which is part of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, said officials had requested information from the top seven baby food manufacturers and four responded. The report said internal company documents and test results obtained by the subcommittee found the food contained arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury. The subcommittee said it is also concerned about the three companies that “refused to coorperate” with the investigation because that “might be obscuring the presence of even higher levels of toxic heavy metals in their baby food.”
