Parents of children suffering from neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism or attention deficit disorder are filing baby food lawsuits. Baby food containing toxic heavy metals is a common source of contamination. Both the FDA and WHO consider heavy metals dangerous for human health, particularly for infants and young children. The WHO has included mercury, cadmium, and lead in its top 10 list for chemicals of major concern.

A committee of the U.S. House of Representatives asked for test results and documents from seven of America's largest baby food manufacturers. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), allow adult-use bottled water to contain as much as:

  • 10 parts per billion (ppb), of inorganic arsenic
  • Cadmium 5 ppb
  • Lead 5 ppb
  • Mercury 2 ppb

This information is based on the company's own testing and documentation. The companies knew that the ingredients in their products contained high levels of harmful metals, but they did not do anything about it.
