A congressional report entitled ‘Baby Foods Are Tainted with Dangerous Levels of Arsenic, Lead, Cadmium, and Mercury’ issued on February 4, 2021, found that seven baby food manufacturers in the United States have sold baby food containing “dangerously high levels” of toxic heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium and arsenic.

These toxic metals can harm the development of a baby’s brain, and may lead to neurodevelopmental problems in children such as autism and ADHD, and other health conditions. The report found that many baby food products, including “Earth’s Best Organic®” brand products by Hain Celestial Group, are tainted with high levels of inorganic arsenic and/or lead.

Some of these products include:

  • Rice cereal
  • Whole grain multi-grain cereal
  • Pureed foods containing quinoa and lentil

The congressional report also found that Hain Celestial Group violated its own standards for lead and arsenic, by containing over 150% of its own upper limit for each in many of its Earth’s Best baby foods. Hain’s self-imposed limit for lead content in five of its ingredients is already forty times higher than the FDA’s guidance limit on lead in bottled water.
