Some of the most popular baby foods on the market tested positive for the toxins.
Five-hundred baby food products were tested.
The study by the Clean Label Project also found that a whopping 80 percent of baby formulas contained arsenic.
Experts warn that arsenic can affect a child’s motor skills, cognition, and heart as they’re growing.
Also in that study is lead. More than a third of the popular baby foods tested positive for lead.
And nearly 60 percent contained another metal-cadmium.
Those chemicals can pose potential risks for infants especially problems with their young immune and nervous systems.
The FDA had previously looked into the impact of arsenic in rice-based baby foods and even rice puffs.
Health experts say the best thing a parent can do is look closely at the food labels.
