According to internal company documents and test results, 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.

Based on a recent congressional report, several manufacturers of baby food sell products that may not meet basic standards for infant consumption.  The following companies were a part of the government’s inquiry:

  • Nurture, Inc. (Nurture), which sells Happy Family Organics, including baby food products under the brand name HappyBABY
  • Beech-Nut Nutrition Company (Beech-Nut)
  • Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (Hain), which sells baby food products under the brand name Earth’s Best Organic
  • Gerber
  • Campbell Soup Company (Campbell), which sells baby food products under the brand name Plum Organics
  • Walmart Inc. (Walmart), which sells baby food products through its private brand Parent’s Choice
  • Sprout Foods, Inc. (Sprout Organic Foods)

Only four companies —Nurture, Beech-Nut, Hain, and Gerber— cooperated with the investigation. Their voluntary disclosure of documents demonstrated dangerous levels of toxic metals in baby food sold to consumers.  Walmart, Campbell, and Sprout Organic Foods refused to cooperate. Their lack of cooperation might be obscuring the presence of even higher levels of toxic heavy metals in their baby food products than their competitors’ products.
