A new report from the Environmental Defense Fund has found some shocking details regarding baby food. According to the report, around 20 per cent of the baby food samples tested had lead content in them.
The research was done on samples collected in the time frame of 2003 to 2013.
“The levels we found were relatively low, but when you add them up — with all the foods children eat … it’s significant,” says study author Tom Neltner of the Environmental Defense Fund.
While the lead levels did not exceed the limits set by FDA, as FDA is considering changing the regulations, there is a sense of uncertainty.
