Baby Food Safety Act of 2021 to be submitted to Congress for approval

Proposed legislation in response to the recent congressional investigation into disturbing levels of toxic heavy metals found in mainstream baby food products is planned to be submitted to Congress on Friday, April 2nd.  If approved, baby food manufacturers would be required to regularly test and verify that their foods meet lower limits for lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium.  In addition, the U.S. secretary of health and human services would be required to further reduce the allowed levels within two years, set regulations in place within three years, and review the limits every five years to examine whether they “should be lowered further.”
