It has alleged Gerber and some other baby food makers that their products contain lead in them. The trial will decide whether the companies must add a warning label for products. Environmental Law Foundation has urged that the case must be taken seriously and the lawsuit must be filed in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland. Lawyers for these food firms have reported that the products were found to be clean from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration. The products were sold after thorough scrutiny. These products that have been targeted contain the amount of lead far below the standard.
