Demand Congress protect our babies from tainted baby food!

Target: United States Congress

Parents in this country couldn’t find formula to feed their babies and now they have to worry about what is in the baby food they purchase. No mother should have to worry about what she is spooning into her babies’ mouths, day after day.

A congressional report found significant levels of toxic heavy metals in baby food — both conventional and organic. Lead. Arsenic. Cadmium. Mercury. These are poisonous to a baby’s developing brain and nervous system.

Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi (IL-08), Representative Tony Cárdenas (CA-29), Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN), and Senator Tammy Duckworth (IL) have introduced the Baby Food Safety Act to address this problem. This legislation would dramatically reduce toxic heavy metals in baby food, educate parents about the risks, and invest in researching ways to reduce toxic heavy metals in crops and soil. The Baby Food Safety Act would make it easier for parents to nourish their babies without unknowingly putting them at risk.

Tell Congress to protect our babies by supporting the Baby Food Safety Act now.
