Leading baby food manufacturers knowingly sold products with high levels of toxic metals, a congressional investigation found

quote [ Healthy Babies Bright Futures published a report in 2019 that found toxic metals in 95% of the baby foods randomly pulled off supermarket shelves and tested -- that exposé was the "inspiration" for the subcommittee's work, Krishnamoorthi told CNN. ]

Totally healthy problems for a totally healthy country.

This has been known for a while - rice in America is not great. And while the article is correct, the better title would be "American government doesn't regulate heavy metals in baby food." Of course the manufacturers are going to do the letter of the law and not the intent. If you want things better, change the law/regulations, easy peasy.

Well, not during neo-fascists times but the messaging is pretty easy here.

I'm still waiting for actual baby food. Tinned babies. That sounds delicious! But not ones fed on this crap.

Ha! Yeah, but before we snack on babies I'm going to need a couple of Stimutacs. Gimme gimme gimme!

Reminds me of back when Gerber marketed baby food in African regions where few spoke English and the picture on the can was assumed to depict what was in it.
