Food Poisoning

Study finds arsenic in 65 percent of baby food products

USA Today  reports that an “alarming” study released Wednesday by the Clean Label Project “found many baby food products test positive for arsenic, including 80% of infant formulas.” The nonprofit advocacy group tested about 530 baby products, including food, “infant formulas, toddler drinks and snacks purchased within the past 5 months,” and “found 65% of products tested positive for arsenic, 36% for lead, 58% for cadmium and 10% for acrylamide.” FDA spokesperson Peter Cassell said, “It is important for consumers to understand that some contaminants, such as heavy metals like lead or arsenic, are in the environment and cannot simply be removed from food.”

The New York Daily News notes that the FDA “proposed a limit of 100 parts per billion of arsenic in infant rice foods in 2016, but the limit isn’t being enforced.”
