Lawsuits are Filed Against Two Baby Food Companies for Unsafe Lead Levels
SANTA ANA, CA – June 8, 2018 (abc7.com). According to an online news report at abc7.com, two baby food companies are being sued for alleged dangerously elevated lead levels.*
The companies, Graceleigh Inc. and Nutraceutical Corporation, are facing lawsuits that have been filed by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. The suits claim that the lead levels in their baby food exceed the United States Food and Drug Administration’s “provisional daily intake levels” for children under the age of 6. The complaint also alleges that the contaminated baby formula caused lead exposure to children between thirteen and fifteen times that maximum allowable dose pursuant to California law.
"When parents give their toddlers formula, they need to have peace of mind that the product they are giving them is safe and free of lead," District Attorney Tony Rackauckas noted in a statement.
The affected products are Sammy’s Milk and Peaceful Planet baby formulas. The two companies that manufacture these products have agreed to stop selling them in California and also have been ordered to recall them.
Exposure to lead to cause damage to the brain, stunt development and can also lead to behavior issues.
"In this particular case, whether it's a known product, then you're going to definitely want to make sure that those children who've been exposed have their pediatrician do that lead levels on them to make sure that it's not at a level that requires treatment," stated Dr. Daniel McCrimons, a pediatrician.
