As a mom who examines every label, I thought I was informed.
But then I forgot that many packages don’t list the heavy metals that might be lurking inside.
The good folks at EnviroLaw tested juice boxes and packaged fruit for lead content and found a staggering 85% contained lead. What was truly surprising is that many organic brands are listed. Which leads me to wonder if the packaging itself may contain lead, or if it’s part of the manufacturing process that adds lead to the final product. This is similar to High Fructose Corn Syrup containing mercury or organic canned foods containing traces of BPA. Both instances result from the processing or packaging.
