Beech Nut Baby Food Class Action Lawsuit – Heavy Metals & Toxicity Found

Beech-Nut Baby Foods Contain Heavy Metals, Lawsuit Contends 

Are you aware of what goes inside your little one’s food? Because of their extremely young and vulnerable state, all parents practice an added extra amount of cautiousness in selecting the right food to feed their young children – most especially infants.

Heeding to this, many companies have prided themselves to practice only the epitome of quality control to market their products to extremely health-conscious consumer parents.

However, how would you react if a certain baby food maker is accused of not disclosing the risk of their products to young children?

This is the case in the lawsuits filed against Beech-Nut Nutrition Company involving their baby food products.

According to online reports we have curated here in Consider The Consumer, the February lawsuits allege that certain Beech-Nut baby foods have a significantly higher risk of containing heavy metals such as perchlorate, lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic, along with other harmful chemicals in the products’ ingredients. 

Additionally, the lawsuits claimed that Beech-Nut Nutrition Company, the maker of Beech-Nut baby foods, made pronouncements such as their products being “real food for babies” and are perfectly safe for consumption. However, this is far from the truth. 

The lawsuits list certain Beech-Nut baby foods that are said to be laced with toxic chemicals. These include the following products:

  • Beech-Nut Classic baby foods
    • Beech-Nut Rice Single Grain Baby Cereal (Stage 1)

 

  • Beech-Nut Organics baby foods

As of press time, the separate lawsuits filed against Beech-Nut Nutrition Company are seeking to take the company to court in order to answer their complaints. 

The defendants are asking the court to allow them to represent similarly situated individuals from New York, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – effectively forming a Class to move forward to the class action proceedings.
