companies Knowingly sold tainted baby food

In 2021, a U.S. Congressional Subcommittee reported that numerous popular baby food products contain “dangerously high levels” of arsenic, mercury, lead, and cadmium. Shockingly, Happy Family Organics, Gerber, Hain Celestial (Earth’s Best Organic), Beech-Nut, Plum Organics, Walmart (Parent’s Choice), and Sprout Organic Food knowingly sold tainted baby food to unsuspecting parents, according to the report.

Even at low levels, exposure to toxic heavy metals has been linked to serious irreversible damage to neurological development. Such exposure is particularly dangerous for babies and young children because their brains and nervous systems are still developing, and their systems do not flush heavy metals out of their bodies as quickly as in adults.

As one recent study observed:

“[t]he implications of heavy metals with regards to children’s health have been noted to be more severe compared to adults. The elements’ harmful consequences on children’s health include mental retardation, neurocognitive disorders, behavioral disorders, respiratory problems, cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Much attention should be given to heavy metals because of their high toxicity potential, widespread use, and prevalence.”

Numerous studies have linked toxic heavy metal exposure

2019 — Healthy Babies Bright Futures published a report on their investigation of baby foods.

  • 95% of the baby food products tested contained toxic chemicals, including arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury.
  • Of the 168 baby foods tested, all but 9 tested positive for heavy metals.

2019 — The U.S. House of Representatives requested test results and internal documents from seven of the largest baby food manufacturers in the U.S.

  • Four companies (Beech-Nut, Gerber, Hain, and Nurture) cooperated.
  • Three others (Plum, Sprout, and Walmart) refused to cooperate at first but later turned over documents.

2020 —The U.S. House of Representatives analyzed the documents produced and investigated the contents of those baby foods. 

The House baby food Reports found:

  • Up to 91 times more than the level of arsenic deemed acceptable for adults
  • Up to 69 times more than the level of cadmium deemed acceptable for adults
  • Up to 177 times more than the level of lead deemed acceptable for adults
  • Up to 5 times more than the level of mercury deemed acceptable for adults

2021 — Beech-Nut recalled several lots of its Infant Rice Cereal due to high levels of arsenic.

2021 —The FDA announced that Maple Island, which manufactures Parent’s Choice baby food sold at Walmart, issued a voluntary recall of its rice baby cereal after a sample tested above the limit for inorganic arsenic.


ASD currently affects about 1 in 59 children. While the incidence is rising, it’s unclear if this results from increased diagnosis or increased occurrence.

Because people with autism are said to “on the spectrum,” an individual child may exhibit various symptoms that range from mild to severe. Some of the most common ASD symptoms include:

Lack of Social Skills

Children with autism have a hard time interacting with others.  Those on the spectrum usually begin exhibiting social symptoms by the time they’re 8 to 10 months old.

Communications Problems

About 40% of kids with autism don’t talk at all. Between 25% and 30% develop some language skills in infancy but lose them later, and others don’t begin talking until later in life. 

Patterns of Behavior

Many children with autism behave in ways that seem unusual or have unusual interests.
