Baby Food Lawsuit

Your Child’s Autism May Not Be Just Chance.

Our babies, our babies, are being put at increased risk for autism right this minute. That’s because the very brand foods we all trust to keep our babies safe are in fact laced with dangerous heavy metals. This is not conjecture – this is fact.1

An explosive report published last year by the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform, entitled, “Baby Foods Are Tainted with Dangerous Levels of Arsenic, Lead, Cadmium, and Mercury,” first widely confirmed to parents nationwide that massive-dose levels of arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium are found in no less than 95 percent of U.S.-made baby foods and can escalate risk of developing autism, from birth to age 14.

A Case for Women Is Doing Something About It With the Baby Food Lawsuit.

We are a group of women helping women. Some of us have babies and some of us have grown children, but we all share a sense of disgust for how the most trusted names in baby food chose to endanger our next generation.

If your child was diagnosed with autism and ate foods made by any of the following manufacturers, please contact us right away.

We want to help you take legal action that will not only seek compensation for your injuries but will also change our broken system that has allowed these dangerous foods to be widely sold.

Autism: An Epidemic

In the U.S., autism is escalating at a faster pace than anywhere else in the world – 1/44 diagnosed here compared with 1/100 worldwide, a 178 percent increase since 2000. A 2021 study by the NIH (National Institutes of Health), “suggests heavy metals are known to be harmful for neurodevelopment.”2 The NIH findings provide “additional evidence to existing literature regarding the potential role of toxic metals in children’s behavior.”

Consumer Reports Food Safety Division (CR) also conducted an analysis of 50 random, nationally distributed packaged foods for babies and toddlers, updated last September, which found that products higher in rice content were most problematic since rice contains higher levels of inorganic arsenic, as well as cadmium and lead. CR chemists, led by Tunde Akinleye, determined that heavy metals in combination are more adverse to neurobehavioral development.

Meanwhile, the uninterrupted sale of U.S. infant nutrition products containing dozens of times the 2016 safety recommendations isn’t getting much attention, nor are manufacturers rushing to make products any safer. Why? Because the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) isn’t enforcing tighter regulations; it only keeps promising to enforce tighter regulations.

Advocates accuse the FDA of revising and recommending, not enforcing.

The FDA, responding to Congress’ alert, launched a four-pronged plan in April 2021 called “Closer to Zero,” which pledged action to lower metal levels as close to zero as possible in baby food products by 2024 (or sometime after). The industry is known for self-regulating and internally establishing safety regs, not for testing and accountability.

Classified as a FOOD, infant nutrition products escape the closer scrutiny reserved for DRUGS and DEVICES. FOOD is considered the FDA’s stepchild by many pundits.

Baby food manufacturers may not test products at all, or they may test separate ingredients instead of the finished result. Congress updated its initial report in September 2021, revealing an even more shocking extent of contamination than initially understood and urging radical regulatory change.

Arsenic is the only one of four neurotoxins even enforced by the FDA; its 2016 safety limit for inorganic arsenic in infant rice cereal (the same limit as for adult bottled water) remains 100 parts per billion (ppb) today, despite lower FDA interim recommended levels (IRL) in frequent updates of “Closer to Zero” indicating progress when nothing has changed. Revised recommendations are just that, and manufacturers choose whether or not to follow new IRLs before enforcement.

Who Are We?

A Case for Women has a history of helping women and families. Since our inception in 2016, we have helped many thousands of individuals who have been harmed by the actions of corrupt institutions and companies. This work has resulted in significant societal changes such as the dramatic changes in gymnastics coaching after the Larry Nassar Michigan State lawsuit, the implementation of rideshare safety protocols, and the removal of Essure birth control from the U.S. market.

A Case for Women is honored to work with The Wagstaff Law Firm on this important initiative. Attorney Aimee Wagstaff has already achieved the impossible by taking on Bayer and Monsanto, the manufacturers of Roundup. Aimee was lead trial counsel for the first and only federal Roundup trial, Hardeman v. Monsanto, tried in early 2019. The Jury returned a verdict in Mr. Hardeman’s favor for $80,267,634.10 (later reduced to $25,267,634.10).
