There are high levels of toxic heavy metals in some baby foods, according to a new congressional report.  
The report says there are high levels of arsenic, lead and mercury.
News 12 spoke with Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, a pediatrician, a mother of two and the chief medical officer at SpoonfulONE. She has also worked in health communications for more than a decade, helping families understand vaccines, food and now this congressional report.
This week, the New York Attorney General Letitia James urged the FDA to act and set standards to remove toxic metals from baby food.
