Enough of the PUFFS! Tell FDA to get arsenic & lead out

Food and Drug Administration, it’s time to protect the health of babies by cutting down the levels allowed in rice-based baby foods sold in stores – including puffs baby snacks – to under 25 ppb for arsenic and 8 ppb for lead —levels comparable to what tests found in safer non-rice alternatives.

summary

Did you know that puffs baby snacks made with rice have more arsenic than any other type of baby food and have high amounts of lead? These chemicals can permanently harm a child’s ability to learn. Tell Food & Drug Administration (FDA) it’s time to get arsenic & lead out of babies’ favorite foods!
