Letters from Consumer Reports to baby food companies to call for suspension of sales of infant rice cereals

Consumer Reports sent letters to five baby food companies to call on them to suspend the manufacturing and sale of infant rice cereal, citing the high levels of inorganic arsenic that continue to show up in these products.

In letters to executives at Walmart, Gerber, Plum Organics, Happy Family Organics and Hain Celestial, CR says a suspension of the manufacturing and sale of infant rice cereal should be imposed and remain in effect “until a more protective health standard for inorganic arsenic is implemented through updated regulations or voluntary measures.”
