Toxic heavy metals found in many common baby foods

Scientific Inquirer

There’s some disturbing news coming out of the baby food department. According to a recent investigation there are toxic levels of heavy metals to be found in several popular brands. Per Reuters, “U.S. congressional investigators found “dangerous levels of toxic heavy metals” in certain baby foods that could cause neurological damage, a House Oversight subcommittee said in a report released on Thursday. The panel examined baby foods made by Nurture Inc, Hain Celestial Group Inc, Beech-Nut Nutrition and Gerber, a unit of Nestle, it said, adding that it was ‘greatly concerned’ that Walmart Inc, Campbell Soup Co and Sprout Organic Foods refused to cooperate with the investigation.” And corporations wonder why the public has such a negative view of them despite their efforts to present themselves as responsible players.
