Baby Food and Heavy Metals Attorneys
In February 2021, the House Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy identified heavy metals in baby food from several large baby food manufacturers in the United States. A report in September of that year “also put forth recommendations for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the baby food industry to eliminate toxic content in baby foods.”
These findings have led some parents to take legal action against the manufacturers, alleging their children were fed baby food found to contain toxic heavy metals and were diagnosed with severe Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or Autism/Autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
The heavy metals included arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury and were identified in brands like Beech-Nut Nutrition Company, Campbell Soup Company (Plum Organics), Gerber, Hain Celestrial Group (Earth’s Best organic products), Nurture (Happy Family Organics and Happy Baby products, Sprout organic foods, and Walmart (Parent’s Choice).
Since then, on October 31, 2022, a federal judge dismissed without prejudice plaintiffs’ fraud and consumer protection claims in a district class action in New Jersey against Campbell Soup Co. and Plum PBC alleging dangerous levels of heavy metals in Plum baby food products, according to the National Law Review.
But other toxic baby food lawsuits continue, and if you believe your child may have been impacted, it is still a good idea to speak with a legal professional about your situation.

Should I accept an insurance offer?
