Lead Found in Children’s and Baby Foods

June 15, 2010

On June 9th, the Environmental Law Foundation (ELF) filed notices of violation of California Proposition 65, the "Toxics Right to Know Law," stating that the toxic chemical, lead, was found in various children’s and baby foods, such as apple juice, grape juice, packaged pears and peaches, and fruit cocktail.  Many organic products also had detectable levels of lead in them.

Lead exposure among children is a concern because their developing bodies absorb lead at a higher rate.  Children are also sensitive to lead’s toxic effects, including decreased I.Q.  

For a complete listing of these products, please go to envirolaw.org/currentcases.html.
