Arsenic shouldn’t be in anyone’s food, and it especially shouldn’t be in baby food. Yet a recently released congressional report found that levels of toxic heavy metals in baby food were worse than expected.

The report found that many baby food manufacturers don’t adequately test their products for toxics, and some didn’t stop selling the baby food that was known to be contaminated. By only testing for singular ingredients, several manufacturers underestimate the amount of heavy metals in their products. Tell your senators to support the Baby Food Safety Act of 2021 today.
