Many baby food products, including infant formulas, were tested positive for arsenic and other toxic contaminants known to pose potential dangers to developing minds and bodies.

The Clean Label Project is a Denver, Colorado-based organization committed to looking beyond the label and marketing terms to give consumers information they need to select products that contain the fewest poisons and food additives.

The study found 65 percent of baby food products tested had detectable levels of arsenic, and almost 80 percent of infant formula samples tested positive for arsenic.

Mainstream brands including Gerber, Enfamil, Plum Organics and Sprout were among the worst offenders - scoring two out of five in the Clean Label Project's report card for toxic metals. Out of the total 530 baby food products which were tested, more than 65% of them reported the presence of harmful chemicals. The group looked at top-selling formulas and baby food using Nielson data, and also included emerging national brands.

The non-profit organization is called #Clean Label Project and advocates for product labeling transparency. Rice often absorbs arsenic from contaminated soil as it grows in the environment.
