The Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on baby food manufacturers for misleading nutrition labels.

Already the FDA has sent warning labels to 17 companies. Some of these companies include:
– Nestle (produces Gerber baby food)
– Beech-nut
– PBM Products
– First Juice, Inc.
– Want Want Foods

The FDA claims that Nestle is making false claims about its baby food, saying it is “healthy” for children of a specific age when it may not be, since the dietary levels have not been established for kids of certain ages.

The companies must either comply with the FDA, working to take steps to ensure that these labels are altered to be more truthful, or they will be brought to court.
