California sues 2 companies alleging lead in toddler formula

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California is suing two companies after state officials say they found dangerous levels of lead in toddler formulas the companies produce.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and 10 district attorneys sued Nutraceutical Corp. and Graceleigh Inc. on Thursday even though the state attorney general's office says the companies have agreed to stop selling the products in California.

The lawsuit says Nutraceutical's Peaceful Planet Toddler Supreme Formula and Graceleigh's Sammy's Milk Free Range Goat Milk Toddler Formula expose toddlers to lead at levels well above federal guidelines.

Sammy's Milk said in a statement it is equally concerned about the health of toddlers and is talking with the attorney general's office to resolve the matter. No one answered the phone at a listing for Nutraceutical.
