Walmart recalls Parent’s Choice Rice Baby Cereal baby food for containing arsenic


Walmart recalled baby food products from its stores after federal health officials revealed high levels of arsenic during a series of tests, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted on its website.

Maple Island Inc. issued a voluntary recall of three batches of its Parent’s Choice Rice Baby cereal that manufactures for Walmart. The recall is the result of a routine FDA sampling program, which found that a sample from three production lots of Parent’s Choice rice baby cereal, contained levels above what the guideline for natural inorganic arsenic allows.

This product was distributed nationally through Walmart stores and in its online sales. Walmart was informed and removed the product from the shelves of its physical and online stores to prevent further sales.
