FDA lab analysis of Alikay Naturals' Bentonite Me Baby identified elevated lead levels posing potential risks to consumers, the agency says in a Jan. 28 safety alert, while the company suggests FDA has mischaracterized its product and intended use. A same-day consumer warning cites hazardous mercury content in a skin cream largely available in Spanish-speaking communities.
