Earth's Best Baby Food Recall 2022: Everything You Need To Know


As much as 95% of baby foods might have high levels of toxic heavy metals. The baby food manufacturers know it but are getting away with selling these tainted items to unsuspecting customers. (1)(2)

Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (Earth’s Best Organic) is among the popular name brands in the recent Congressional baby food safety reports released last February and September 2021. These reports showed that several popular brands knowingly released baby food products with very high heavy metal content. (2)(3)

Have there been any Earth’s Best Baby Food recalls in response to the baby food safety reports? What was the response of the other popular baby food manufacturers to these reports? Did they issue a recall on their tainted products? Find out more below.

Is Earth’s Best Baby Food Recalled?

No recalls on Earth’s Best Baby Food products have been issued by the FDA (U. S. Food and Drug Administration) or the company concerning toxic elements in the baby food safety reports. (2)(3)(4)

These were the only Earth’s Best baby food recalls that have been issued:

Earth’s Best Baby Food Recall (2007)

On February 9, 2007, Hain Celestial Group Inc. recalled Earth’s Best Organic (stage 2) products that may have been contaminated with Clostridium botulinum. This pathogen can cause botulism (a severe form of food poisoning). (5)

These products were recalled: (5)

  • Apple Peach Barley Wholesome Breakfast (4.5-ounce jars in individual packs and 4.5-ounce jars in 12 packs) with UPC 23923-20223 and expiry date of September 14, 2008
  • Wholesome Breakfast Variety Pack (12 pack) with UPC 23923-20295 and expiry date of September 13, 2008

No illnesses have been reported relevant to this baby food recall. But affected consumers were instructed to dispose of the products, even if these didn’t look spoiled or contaminated. (5)

The FDA warned that botulism can cause: (5)

  • Blurred vision
  • Slurred speech
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Paralysis
  • Restricted breathing or even death in severe cases

Hain Celestial Group Inc. said that it has distributed 4,072 cases of the specified individual jars with 24 jars per case and 38,298 variety packs with the specified jars.

Earth’s Best Baby Food In Congressional Reports

Which Baby Food Brands Are Toxic?

The US House Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy, headed by Chairman Raja Krishnamoorthi, called on these popular baby food manufacturers to submit their internal policies and heavy metal test results: (2)

  • Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (Earth’s Best Organic)
  • Nurture, Inc. (HappyBABY and HappyTOT)
  • Beech-Nut Nutrition Company (Beech-Nut)
  • Gerber
  • Campbell’s Plum Organics
  • Walmart Inc. (Parent’s Choice)
  • Sprout Foods, Inc. (Sprout Organic Foods)

Hain, Nurture, Beech-Nut, and Gerber were the only brands that submitted their results and internal policies for the first Subcommittee Report. Yet the results showed alarmingly high levels of toxic metals. (2)

The Subcommittee expressed concern over these findings, especially because studies have shown that exposure to heavy metals can negatively affect your growing child’s body and brain development. (1)(6)(7)

According to the Subcommittee, these companies knew that their products had dangerous levels of heavy metals but didn’t correct them to meet government regulations. Instead, they increased their maximum levels so these products could pass. (2)

The FDA’s inorganic arsenic limit is 100 ppb (parts per billion) for infant rice cereals, but these companies increased their limits: (2)(8)

  • Hain (arsenic): 200 ppb
  • Beech-Nut (arsenic): 3,000 ppb
  • Nurture (arsenic): 115 ppb

The FDA set these maximum limits for bottled water: (8)

  • 10 ppb inorganic arsenic
  • 5 ppb cadmium
  • 5 ppb lead

But the baby food companies increased their internal limits to several times the FDA standards: (2)

  • Hain (lead): 200 ppb
  • Hain (cadmium): 200 ppb
  • Beech-Nut (lead): 5,000 ppb
  • Beech-Nut (cadmium): 3,000 ppb

Is Earth’s Best Baby Food Safe?

Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (makers of Earth’s Best Organic) told the Subcommittee that it doesn’t test for heavy metal content. Instead, “theoretical calculations” are done based on the raw ingredients’ results. (2)

The company set internal limits that are higher than FDA standards: (2)

  • Arsenic: 200 ppb
  • Lead: 200 ppb
  • Cadmium: 200 ppb

But they still released products with toxic content much higher than their internal testing standards: (2)

Inorganic Arsenic:

  • Up to 309 ppb (raw ingredients)
  • Up to 129 ppb (finished baby food products)


  • No mercury test.


  • Up to 352 ppb (raw ingredients)


  • Up to 260 ppb (raw ingredients)

Second Congressional Report

According to the follow-up report released by the House Subcommittee in September 2021 based on independent tests conducted by the state of Alaska, the companies still produce the same products with harmful heavy metal content. (2)(3)

None of the baby food companies mentioned in the first report notified the public of their heavy metal content or recalled the tainted products. (3)

Earth’s Best In Baby Food Lawsuits

Several class suits have been filed against the companies listed on the first Congressional Report, including Hain Celestial Group Inc. (manufacturer of Earth’s Best baby food products). (9)(10)

A class suit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York City, New York, in February 2021 claims that Hain “misleadingly portrays” its Earth’s Best Organic products as “time-trusted and safe” and “are made from pure ingredients to help children grow up strong and healthy.” (9)

Another lawsuit was filed against the makers of Earth’s Best Organic, Gerber, Beech-Nut, and Happy Baby for producing baby foods with toxic metals that allegedly caused harm to at least seven children diagnosed with autism in Las Vegas, Nevada. (10)

The first Congressional Report was used as the basis of this lawsuit, with the companies accused of “knowingly selling tainted baby foods” to unsuspecting parents. (10)

Earth’s Best In HBBF Comprehensive Food Safety Test

Aside from the Congressional Subcommittee’s reports, other baby food safety reports have also shown the worrisome status of the baby food industry in the US.

In 2019, an HBBF (Healthy Babies Bright Futures) report showed that as much as 95% of baby foods from different brands sold in the US might have high levels of toxic heavy metals. (1)

HBBF commissioned independent tests of 168 baby foods from 61 brands. (1)

The tests had alarming results: (1)

  • Arsenic: 73% of baby foods
  • Lead: 94% of baby foods
  • Mercury: 32% of baby foods
  • Cadmium: 75% of baby foods

What’s alarming is that 26% of these tested baby foods have all four toxic chemicals in a single container. (1)

Acknowledging the absence of a known safe level for heavy metal exposure, HBBF urges baby food manufacturers to establish a goal of having no measurable amounts of heavy metals in any baby and children’s food. (1)

Earth’s Best In Consumer Reports Food Safety Test

In 2018, Consumer Reports tested 50 baby foods for heavy metals. The independent study showed that all the packaged baby foods tested have measurable levels of at least one toxic metal. (4)

At least fifteen baby foods tested by Consumer Reports may pose potential health risks, even if eaten just once a day. (4)

Consumer Reports expressed alarm over these results: (4)

  • About 68% of baby foods can have high levels of at least one toxic metal.
  • Products containing sweet potatoes or rice can have higher toxic metal levels.
  • Organic foods can have similar heavy metal content as conventional baby foods.

Despite these troubling results, Consumer Reports explained that eating these foods doesn’t automatically cause health and growth issues for your baby. But regular intake of these foods may increase the risk of developing these health problems. (4)

Still, Consumer Reports warned that young children exposed to other toxic chemical sources (such as lead paint or contaminated water) can have increased risks. (4)

  • Less than 0.142 ppb

Inorganic Arsenic:

  • Up to 3.1 ppb


  • Up to 5.6 ppb

  • More than 300 ppb (in additives or ingredients used in various products)


  • Up to 886.9 ppb (raw materials)


  • Up to 344.55 ppb (raw materials)

How Heavy Metals Get Into Food

Heavy metals can be found on the Earth’s surface. Still, the toxic chemicals in food may come from contaminated water or soil due to pesticides and other farming practices. (4)

Contamination may also be possible from tainted machinery or manufacturing processes used in making baby foods. (4)

Reducing Heavy Metals in Baby Food Products

Heavy metals, even in low concentrations, can negatively impact your baby’s brain development. So, Consumer Reports and the US PIRG (Public Interest Research Group) call for the Baby Food Safety Act of 2021 to be passed into law. (11)

Under this law, the FDA needs to create and strictly implement baby food regulations with much lower maximum heavy metal limits than the current standards. (11)

It also requires baby food manufacturers to test both ingredients and finished products.These test results must be released to parents and regulatory agencies. (11)

Healthier Baby Food Products

The following baby food products may be healthier alternatives:

  • Little Spoon (subscription-based)
  • Yumi (subscription-based)
  • Serenity Kids
  • Little Journey Organics
  • Once Upon A Farm

Preparing Healthier Alternatives At Home

You can prepare your baby’s food using these ingredients: (4)

  • Quality meats, poultry, or fish
  • Whole or puréed vegetables and fruits (avocados, apples, bananas, peaches, grapes, and strawberries)
  • Organic eggs
  • Bone broth
  • Healthy fats (coconut oil, olive oil, or ghee)
  • Raw yogurt
  • Coconut yogurt
  • Quinoa
  • Oats
  • Applesauce (unsweetened)

You can also do the following: (1)(4)

  • Avoid using brown rice (higher levels of inorganic arsenic content than white rice)
  • Sushi rice from the US or white basmati rice from California, India, and Pakistan can be healthier alternatives to brown rice.
  • Feed your baby with carrots and sweet potatoes in moderation. These can have high levels of lead or cadmium but are important sources of vitamin A and other nutrients.
  • Limit your baby’s intake of infant rice cereal (or other infant cereal products.)
  • Limit packaged snacks and teething biscuits
  • Prepare rice using larger amounts of water (6 to 10 parts water to 1 part rice). Drain afterward to help reduce levels of arsenic.
  • Avoid processed fruit juices.
  • Avoid chocolates
  • Avoid high-mercury fish: bigeye tuna, king mackerel, shark, swordfish, and orange roughy.
  • Test your drinking water for high arsenic levels.

Adapted milk formulas for newborns and children after 6 months without palm oil

All manufacturers of baby food for newborns strive to develop a product that is as close as possible in composition to mother's milk. After all, it is the best food for babies.

To this end, large companies are creating laboratories where they study the composition of breast milk and create components for adapted mixtures.

Dairy adapted formulas are made without palm oil, starch and glucose and contain only breast milk components. Nutrition for a later period - from 6 months or from a year is called partially adapted and may contain these components in its composition. nine0009

What does adapted milk formula mean?

This is baby food that is created for babies from birth and is as close as possible in composition and consistency to human milk.

For example, such products for newborns contain whey protein, which is more easily absorbed by the baby's body than casein, cow's protein.

What is the composition of the adapted mixtures?

In addition to a special protein, the composition necessarily includes components of breast milk, which help the baby who is breast-fed to fully develop. Here are the main ones: nine0009

  • Trace elements - iodine, calcium, potassium and phosphorus. They help regulate metabolism, build bones and other body tissues.
  • Nucleotides - form a strong immunity of the baby and the digestive system.
  • PUFAs or polyunsaturated fatty acids are extremely important for the development of mental activity, nerve cells and vision.
  • Oligosaccharides are the latest component that scientists have learned to synthesize and add to baby food as recently as 2018. Therefore, it is in the composition of the products of only the largest manufacturers. And these products are more expensive than others. But this is a very important component - carbohydrates, which are involved in the development of the child's immunity. nine0352
  • Taurine is an amino acid that is very important for babies and premature babies. It affects the development of the nervous system of the crumbs.

Other ingredients may also be present in infant products, such as pre- and probiotics, other minerals, vitamins, and amino acids.

Types of adapted mixtures

This category includes: adapted, partially adapted or special mixtures.

Highly adapted or adapted blends

Essentially, they are one and the same. This is nutrition for babies from 0 months to six months, which is as close as possible to mother's milk.

All Materna formulas from 0 to 6 months are classified as adapted. And the Materna Gold line is highly adapted due to the presence of oligosaccharides. There is no product closer to breast milk than Materna Gold HM-O.

Partially adapted blends

From six months, the needs of the child's body for nutrients change. At this time, complementary foods begin to be introduced, and children's food becomes more diverse in composition. Manufacturers are still trying to make products similar to breast milk, but they are already adding casein instead of whey protein, because the baby's body is ready to absorb it. Sometimes palm oil, starch or glucose appears at this stage.

By age - this is stage 2 and 3 - for babies after 6 months and from 1 year. nine0009

Special blends

Dairy products are not suitable for children with lactose intolerance. It happens that there is an undesirable reaction to other components. In this case, the pediatrician should recommend a special diet.

Special formulas for infants are also adapted, because manufacturers strive to bring their composition closer to mother's milk. However, they also solve narrow problems, for example:
