Gerber posted on their FB page that this was a false test. They had 3 different labs do testing and it contains the same amounts as drinking water. They even told the Oz show before it aired. I hear a lawsuit brewing!

Oh boy... that's possible, though I hope it doesn't come to all that.
I will say, Gerber has reason to say otherwise... it's their pockets. Dr Oz is a 3rd party... I'd trust him before Gerber. I will be avoiding them all, just to be safe. It's a scary thought!

Gerber lies. Constantly. Did you see.the study where McDs fries are better/just as bad as the Gerber toddler meals? Plus, Gerber is.NOT WHO compliant.

So even if Dr Oz is fear mongering, I'll take his word over Gerber and their reknowned backhanded marketing. :)

Wow yuck.
Another thing that totally freaked me out was reading 'skinny bit**' that book talked about the rotten chickens and how they trow them in to the pile to be ground up with all the other baby food. Not sure if this is true but UGH :yuck: I blame it on the government's extremely lax laws about our food supply, but thats a whole other issue.

And apple seeds contain cyanide (you know some must get crushed in the juice) and high fructose corn syrup has mercury in it.

It's probably safe to give your lo's little bits of juice-everything in moderation.

Theres a big thing on the FDA's website. There is organic and inorganic(not naturally occouring) the Oz show apparently measured both together. They are not the same.
