A new study by a watchdog organization is getting a lot of media attention because it found that most baby foods and formulas contain at least trace amounts of contaminates - including lead, arsenic, cadmium and acrylamides - that can be risky to children in large doses.
The Clean Label Project, an advocacy group pressing for more transparency in labeling, released a study Wednesday that 80% of infant formulas they tested were contaminated.
The researchers noticed that the toxic chemicals like arsenic, lead and other are present in the baby products like snacks, drinks, and infant formulas.
The lab tested over 700 food products including infant formula.
Of the products that claim to be BPA-free, 60 percent were found positive for the industrial chemical bisphenol A.
According to USA Today, leading brands like Gerber, Plum Organics, Enfamil, and Sprout performed worst in the Clean Label Project report.
Arsenic was the most common contaminate spotted in the Clean Label Project study. In 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration proposed a limit of 100 parts per billion of arsenic in infant rice cereal, but not enforcing that limit.
Arsenic and cadmium are naturally occurring elements found in soil, water and air, so it is not surprising that they are found in food. There are strict regulations on lead, though many experts think those need updating because no amount of lead is safe. And even low levels of lead have been linked to low IQs, hearing issues, anemia and behavioral problems.
"The baby industry needs to do a better job in protecting America's most vulnerable population", Bowen said.
The nonprofit, which advocates for transparent labeling of products, looked at the top-selling formulas and baby food as well as emerging national brands based on Nielsen data.
