Organic Baby Formulas Heavy Metals-free

They have found any baby formulas brands containing hazardous levels of heavy metals in their products.

According to CNN:

Arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury are in the World Health Organization's top 10 chemicals of concern for infants and children. Arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury are in the World Health Organization's top 10 chemicals of concern for infants and children. Arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury are in the World Health Organization's top 10 chemicals of concern for infants and children. Arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury are in the World Health Organization's top 10 chemicals of concern for infants and children.

"Dangerous levels of toxic metals like arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury exist in baby foods at levels that exceed what experts and governing bodies say is permissible,"

 

Here are the brands that are being found guilty. Recognize them so you can avoid them.

Happy Baby products; and Hain Celestial Group, Inc., which sells Earth's Best Organic baby food, showed levels of heavy metals far above limits set for bottled water by the FDA and the US Environmental Protection Agency, the congressional investigators found.

According to CNN:

These are the additional companies and their brands investigated:

In February 2022, Hain Celestial Group Inc., the maker of a variety of Earth’s Best organic infant formulas, was the latest company to be hit with a proposed class-action suit in a New York federal court, alleging it misleads parents into believing its premium baby foods are healthy, nutritious, and non-toxic, when they actually contain undisclosed dangerous levels of lead and other toxic heavy metals.

Gerber Products Co. and Beech-Nut Nutrition Co. also face similar suits.

Coincidently, before these lawsuits, in 2019, an organization called Healthy Babies Bright Futures (HBBF) released a report on new tests of 168 baby foods for heavy metals.

13 baby formulas, including Earth’s Best Organic Sensitivity – DHR/ARA Infant Formula with Iron Organic Milk-Based Powder, were tested for arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury. All of them had detectable levels of the heavy metals; however, none of them had levels that exceeded European levels of lead and cadmium in baby food and proposed levels of arsenic by the FDA.  The Earth’s Best formula did not have the highest levels of heavy metals.  You can see the report here.

The Healthy Babies Bright Future’s suggestions for parents included reducing the consumption of rice-based baby foods and choosing filtered water over juices. They did not have any actionable advice regarding infant formulas.

While it is unacceptable that no one is regulating this, it is up to us to educate ourselves and research.

⭐ In California there is a law that protects the consumers from higher levels of heavy metals in any products sold in the state. I can review the products and see if they carry the heavy metals warning.

🌿 On this page I listed the safest brands on the market that reach my criteria:

1. USDA Certified organic: that means made with at least 95% organic ingredients and pesticides and GMOs are not allowed

2. California proposition 65 warning free+ no heavy metals

3. Natural flavors free: undisclosed mix of ingredients

4. Rice-free because it contains arsenic
