Just when you thought it was safe to go to the baby food aisle, we find there’s arsenic in baby food.
“The FDA is finalizing guidance today that will…..(reduce) infants’ exposure to inorganic arsenic, which has been associated with neurodevelopmental effects.”
Call me crazy, but I would have thought that we didn’t need a formal guidance to keep arsenic out of infant cereal, because it is, after all THE 21st CENTURY. 🙄
But it seems I would be wrong.
The article goes on to say that “the agency’s data show that most products (74%) on the market are already below” action levels for inorganic arsenic, and that “significant improvements” have been made over previous year’s data.
Well, I would certainly hope so, because arsenic in baby food is SO 19th century.
