TopDog Law | Glen Mills Reformatory School Faces Lawsuit

Former students that attended Glen Mills Reformatory School are coming forward to tell their stories of abuse from the school. The newest round of stories is joining the hundreds that other students have already told. These students are suing the institution for abuse that has occurred for decades.

Students that attended Glen Mills found themselves fearing for their lives but also quiet about the events that occurred. There were beatings, threats, rapes, assault, and more that the students fell silent about.

Glen Mills School is the oldest reform school in the country for court-ordered boys. It is located in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The school created a toxic environment for the students, intimidating the boys but putting on a perfect facade to the rest of the country.

The first class-action lawsuit was filed against Glen Mills School on March 27, 2019, by Berger Montague PC. This was the first class-action lawsuit against Glen Mills on behalf of the former students.

TopDog Law | Toxins Found in Name Brand Baby Foods

An investigation in February 2021 by the House Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy discovered toxins and metals in name brand baby foods. “Dangerous levels of toxic metals like arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury… levels that exceed what experts and governing bodies say are permissible.”1  The World Health Organization says that these mtals are some of the most toxic chemicals for infants.

Name brand baby food companies Gerber, Beech-Nut Nutrition Company, Nurture, Inc., and Hain Celestial Group were found to have been knowingly selling foods with metals but did nothing to stop it. One of the bigget questions asked was “how did they get away with this?” Dr. Leonardo Trasande, a pediatrics professor at NYU said “the reality is that the funding for the FDA is chiefly for drug studies… resources for testing food in the comprehensive way that parents might prefer is not so easily available.” 2

Naturally, soil contains these toxins and some regions contain even higer levels than others. However, even the organic baby foods were found to have extremely high levels of metal in them. Compare the standard of 100 parts per billion of arsenic for baby food, which is entirely too high, to the much lower standard of 10 parts per billion of arsenic in bottled water.

The next question is “how do I know if my child is affected by these metals?” If possible, have your child checked out by a pediatrician. They will most likely show symptoms of having development delays and/or breathing issues. Additionally, they may get sick after eating any of the brands listed.

TopDog Law wants to get justice for the babies that have ingested these toxins. These companies created a trust for decades, just to leave so many parents with little to no other food options. If your child has displayed any symptoms mentioned, contact us immediately. You can call at 800-215-7211 or send us a message for a free consultation.
