  • District of Columbia AG Karl Racine sued baby-food manufacturer Beech-Nut Nutrition Company (“Beech-Nut”) over allegations that it used deceptive and misleading advertising about the safety of its baby food in violation of the District’s Consumer Protection Procedures Act.
  • The complaint alleges that Beech-Nut misrepresented its baby food as safe and healthy, and further misrepresented its stringent testing practices and safety standards, even though Beech-Nut knew that its products contained high levels of heavy metals that are known neurotoxins and that harm the development of babies’ brains and nervous system.
  • The complaint seeks injunctive relief, restitution, and civil penalties.
