ForensisGroup baby food expert witnesses work in all aspects of baby food production. This includes engineering, testing, regulatory, marketing, and manufacturing. In addition, they have worked on cases of deceptive labeling practices of baby and toddler foods. The products involved include snack foods that allegedly mislead consumers about being good sources of vitamins C and E, iron and zinc, and support “healthy growth and development.”
A recent study found that many popular baby foods test positive for arsenic, and lawsuits have been filed over lead poisoning in baby food. Fruit juice, root vegetables, and cookies were found to be the baby foods most likely to contain lead.
In addition, baby food can be contaminated during processing from lead leaching from older brass, bronze, plastic, or coated food handling equipment that contains lead…or from deteriorated lead paint in the building. The chemicals pose potential dangers to babies with their developing brains and bodies, affecting motor skills and cognition.
Our experts work on litigation involving personal injury, wrongful death, false advertising, and FDA regulatory compliance.
