News is circulating about a report showing there was a detectable level of lead in nearly a quarter of baby food sampled in a large study. That might sound panic-worthy, but as experts explain, there's actually no reason to freak out. For the report, scientists with the nonprofit organization The Environmental Defense Fund analyzed 11 years of data from the Food and Drug Administration. They found that many foods - including baby foods - are sources of lead.
