Many Baby Food Companies Sell Lead-Contaminated Products…And It’s Totally Legal


Possible lead contamination has and always will be a major concern for parents of young children.
Exposure to lead is said to have a huge impact on a child’s development as an infant. Lead can cause problems with a child’s attention and behavioral habits, as well as their cognitive development, immune system, and cardiovascular health. But while most lead ingestion comes in the form of paint chips or contaminated water, new findings have revealed that hundreds if not thousands of parents could be exposing their babies to lead without realizing it.

1Over the span of 11 years, more than 2,100 baby food samples were examined by the Environmental Defense Fund to check for traces of lead.
