The baby food is contaminated by heavy metals that we give our children. They can cause harmful levels of mercury and lead. This can lead to a myriad of health issues, like impairment in learning, speech problems, or behavioral problems, as well as neurological damage. There's no legal recourse available for parents, or for those who manufacture or make infant food. 

Does the FDA regulate food for babies?

The FDA doesn't regulate the number of heavy metals found in baby food items. Therefore, manufacturers can utilize whatever they wish insofar that they don't go over the limits established by FDA. The lawsuit asserts that this is an issue that is commonplace and at the root of the widespread use of heavy metals in infant food.
