New York Attorney General Letitia James led a coalition of 22 attorneys general in sending a letter urging the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Department of Agriculture (USDA) to take immediate action to reduce toxic metals in baby food. The coalition called on the agencies to expedite their plan to propose “action levels” of certain toxins in baby food, which the AGs explained was already behind schedule, and urged the agencies to take further actions to set limits on toxic metals and provide guidance to baby food manufacturers on how to adhere to those limits.
