(THE SUN UK) – Lead, arsenic and other toxic metals have been found in baby food sold by some of the largest manufacturers in the United States, an investigation has found.

In November 2019, the Oversight Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy requested internal documents and test results from seven of the largest manufacturers of baby food in the US.
The companies included both makers of organic and conventional products such as Nurture – which sells Happy Family Organics – and Walmart – which sells baby food products through its private brand Parent’s Choice.
