July 12, 2021 – San Diego, Ca. The care and safety of your baby or toddler is a top priority for all parents, and with the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Report on Baby Food Contamination, should be a clear warning to parents that not all baby food is safe for young children. Here’s what we know from the 59 page report (link available below in the sources section). In the reports EXECUTIVE SUMMARY they paint a clear picture of the known contaminates present in some brands of baby food, it reads as follows:
“Inorganic arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury are toxic heavy metals. The Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization have declared them dangerous to human health, particularly to babies and children, who are most vulnerable to their neurotoxic effects. Even low levels of exposure can cause serious and often irreversible damage to brain development.”
This is clearly a shocking report to all parents, and we’ve found that many of these baby food companies or retailers have not responded or ignored the Subcommittees’ inquiries for comment. Of further concern is that most of these products have not been recalled from the market, and are still available.
In the FINDINGS section we the level of toxic chemicals that are present in some brands.
“1. According to internal company documents and test results obtained by the Subcommittee, commercial baby foods are tainted with significant levels of toxic heavy metals, including arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury. Exposure to toxic heavy metals causes permanent decreases in IQ, diminished future economic productivity, and increased risk of future criminal and antisocial behavior in children. Toxic heavy metals endanger infant neurological development and long-term brain function. Specifically, the Subcommittee reports that – ARSENIC was present in baby foods made by all responding companies.”
We’ve read the entire 59 page report and many of the levels of heavy metals are as high as 250% of the FDA’s recommended guidelines.
