Jessica Alba should know that when she runs an extremely successful business called The Honest Company, there are probably going to be watchdog groups waiting to challenge your product. And that’s why she’s reportedly facing a lawsuit. According to TMZ, The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) found that her organic baby formula isn’t quite so organic after all. They claim that 11 of the 40 ingredients are artificial, so selling the product with organic on its label is more than 25 percent untrue. Substances like sodium selenite are described as “extremely hazardous” and “a toxic synthetic compound.” The NY Post reports that some ingredients have not even been assessed as safe for human foods, much less for infant formulas. Basically, OCA just wants Jessica and her company to remove the organic claims from her formula labels. This isn’t the first time The Honest Company has faced a lawsuit. She recently came under fire for a handful of her household items.
