Earth’s Best Organic Baby Foods By Hain Celestial Have Toxic Metals In Them – Class Action
Another baby food company is under fire for allegedly failing to disclose consumers of the potentially hazardous chemicals in its baby food product offerings.
Alongside the slew of lawsuits filed against Beech-Nut Nutrition Company, the fellow company The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. is in potential trouble as it is slapped with a class action lawsuit for the non-disclosure of vital information.
The Hain Celestial Group, Inc., named as the defendant in the case, is accused of misleading their customers into believing that their Earth’s Best Organic baby food product lineup is safe for infant consumption.
According to the complaint, the company has made claims to market their product in that particular way, yet they are only hiding the fact that their products contain potentially harmful ingredients such as toxic metals.
Filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, the class action lawsuit against The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. contend that the company’s Earth’s Best Organic baby foods contain traces of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, etc.
Health authorities such as the World Health Organization and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have classified the aforementioned heavy metals as hazardous to human health.
This hazard significantly increases to certain groups of individuals such as infants and young children.
These hordes of class action lawsuits against the country’s biggest baby food manufacturers were filed after the United States House of Representatives released a Congressional report showing that many of the most famous baby food products in the market contain harmful ingredients such as heavy metals and other toxic substances.
