Toxic metals in baby food remain unregulated

Despite delayed government action, manufacturers can do more to reduce toxic metals in baby food. A US Congressional investigation revealed that baby food produced by several major US manufacturers contained high amounts of toxic metals. The survey identified high concentrations of cadmium, lead, mercury and arsenic, which pose long-term health risks for growing children. The […]
