Take Action: In Our Country
In 2021, the Food and Drug Administration announced its Closer to Zero action plan “to reduce exposure to arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury from foods eaten by babies and young children — to as low as possible.”
But their target date of April 2022 has come and gone, and FDA has still not followed through on the proposed action levels in the foods babies eat.
For every day that passes, nearly 10,000 more babies in the U.S. begin eating solid food. The FDA must take swift action to protect the next generation of children.
