Heavy metals found in common baby foods, August 17, 2018

OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - Consumer Reports, a non-profit consumer protection organization, released a study Thursday saying they found heavy metals in all 50 packaged baby food items they tested for lead, cadmium or inorganic arsenic.

The study says even the organic products had measurable levels of a heavy metal. Two-thirds of the products tested had "worrisome" levels.

Heavy metals are of particular health concern for babies and toddlers, according to Dr. Eric Henley, Chief Medical Officer of Lifelong Medical Care in Berkeley.
