A federal judge has dismissed a class action lawsuit against Gerber Products seeking damages for alleged heavy metals contained in baby products, finding the parents’ only purported basis for economic injury stems from allegations that the products pose a threat of future harm to their children.

After the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy, Committee on Oversight and Reform, released a report indicating that measurable levels of arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury were found in several baby food products sold by Gerber Products Co., the plaintiffs filed 13 causes of action in their representative complaint alleging breach of implied warranty, fraudulent concealment, unjust enrichment, and a series of violations of consumer and deceptive trade practices.
