Baby Food Lawsuits
National Law Firm for Heavy Metal Baby Food Lawsuits
If your child or a child in your family has suffered from side effects of exposure to toxic heavy metals from baby food, you may have grounds to file a baby food lawsuit against the manufacturers. Baby food lawsuits for heavy metals allow parents and families harmed by baby food toxins to seek compensation for the permanent damages and suffering that have resulted from these harmful products.
A congressional report released in February of 2021 exposed the heavy metal content of many major baby foods sold commercially in the United States. Specifically, the report outlined the levels of arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury found in four major baby food brands, Beech-Nut, HappyBABY, Earth's Best Organic and Gerber. Finished products and raw ingredients from each of the companies contain staggering levels of toxic heavy metals. Heavy metals in baby foods can cause severe and irreversible harm to the neurological and brain development of babies and young children, resulting in lifelong challenges and disabilities.
Critics point to the fact that baby food manufacturers have long since been aware of the dangerous levels of toxic heavy metals in baby foods, yet have failed to take action to protect our nation's most vulnerable citizens. Baby foods containing heavy metals bear no warning or label to indicate the risk of exposure. Federal regulators are no better; information on toxic baby food was brought before the FDA under President Trump in 2019 and the agency took no action to increase consumer safety. Manufacturers have continued to profit grossly in this $6 billion-plus industry, while jeopardizing the futures of millions of American children.
The congressional report recommends a system of mandatory testing and labeling to remove heavy metals from baby foods. Unfortunately, the threat of major litigation may be the only effective way to force baby food manufacturers to become better corporate citizens. Millions of American children have suffered from the side effects of heavy metals in baby foods, which include lower IQ and academic performance, ADHD, autism, and other neurological problems.

Baby Food Lawsuits Are Not Class Action Lawsuits
Many persons whose child suffered the aftereffects of exposure to heavy metals from baby foods wonder if filing a baby food lawsuit will result in meaningful compensation for their family. Baby food lawsuits will not be class action lawsuits in which those who file a claim can expect only a small, symbolic settlement. On the contrary, lawyers handling baby food lawsuits believe parents and family members of children who have developed autism, ADHD, or other side effects from baby food heavy metal exposure may be entitled to significant compensation. Baby food lawsuits are likely to be consolidated as Multi-District Litigation (MDL), in which each claim will be handled on its own merit and compensation will be determined based on the degree of suffering of each plaintiff.
