study finds lead in kids juice boxes

From Safemama: One of our wonderful readers emailed me about this over the weekend (Thanks Vanessa!) and of course I was all over it, checking it out. I’m not the first to report on it but I felt it warranted SafeMama attention. A study done by the Environmental Law Foundation (ELF) revealed that a large number of juice box and baby food brands, including organic brands, exceeded levels of lead that would be dangerous for the 6 and under age set. This infuriates me beyond belief.

They have published the list of products tested for lead (PDF) and listed the brands that exceeded the CA Prop 65 limit of 0.5 micrograms of lead per serving and those who did not exceed it. See article link for FULL LIST.
