Last week, a judge in California denied a motion by a group of baby food manufacturers that sought to exclude expert testimony regarding a link between heavy metals in baby foods and the development of autism spectrum disorder and ADHD.
This ruling, in NC v. Han Celestial, et al. (Superior Ct. of Cal., Los Angeles Cnty. – 21STCV22822), could have major implications for future toxic baby food lawsuits and it means we could have the first baby food autism trial this summer.
If you have been waiting on the sidelines waiting to see if what you were hearing about the viability of a baby food autism lawsuit was real, this is a post you want to digest. Because this is the biggest development in the history of the baby food toxic metal litigation.
