Our law firm is handling baby food autism lawsuits in all 50 states.

Several brands of very popular baby foods contain alarmingly high levels of heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, lead, and cadmium. These heavy metals are well-known neurotoxins. Consuming these toxic metals in baby foods may have caused thousands of children to develop autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

Many parents are filing a toxic baby food lawsuit to protect their children, alleging claims against the manufacturers of these contaminated baby foods. These baby food autism lawsuits allege the manufacturers knew about heavy metals in their products children developed autism from consuming them.

HappyBaby is a popular baby food brand made by Nurture Inc. and sold at Walmart stores across the U.S.

Last year, an investigation found that many popular baby foods, including HappyBaby brand products, contain unsafe levels of toxic heavy metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium. When infants and young children are exposed to these metals they can cause serious neurologic disorders such as ADHD and autism.

Our toxic baby food lawyers are currently seeking new cases from children (and their parents) who consumed HappyBaby baby foods and were subsequently diagnosed with autism, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD or ADHD), or other neurologic health conditions.

Current research and testing have shown that Gerber and other major brands of baby food contain dangerously high levels of toxic heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and mercury. These harmful metals are well known to cause health complications and neurologic damage in developing children. The development of conditions such as ADHD and autism may be linked to the consumption of these toxic baby foods.

Discovery of Toxic Metals in Baby Foods

Last February, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Economic and Consumer Policy published an investigation report which disclosed that numerous baby food products contain dangerously high levels of toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and arsenic. The report showed many popular baby food products contained levels of these toxins that are hundreds of times higher than the maximum safe levels set by the FDA for other products like bottled water. Testing revealed baby food products with 91 times the maximum safe arsenic level, 177 times the maximum lead level, and 69 times the safe level of cadmium.
