In the United States, high levels of heavy toxic metals, including arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury, have been found in popular brands of baby food. This is stated on the website of the US House of Representatives Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy. Subcommittee experts reviewed the internal documents of Gerber, Nurture Inc, Hain Celestial Group Inc, Beech-Nutrition. The check was carried out after reports of the presence of metals in the diet, which were received by the department a year ago. The study found that commercial baby food contains dangerous levels of arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium that are harmful to children. Experts point out that manufacturers knowingly sell these products to unsuspecting parents without any warning labels. The US authorities plan to seek a revision of the production policies of companies and achieve the adoption of relevant standards at the state level.
