IMPORTANT: Juice and Fruit with Too Much Lead!!!

I'm sure someone in one of your other groups already told you this, but just in case no one did I want to let you know because it is important to know. A company in California tested a bunch of fruit juices and packaged fruits (things that children consume a lot of) and found that MOST of them contain more lead than is allowed by CA law. I know CA has really strict laws about things, but this is a good thing to be strict about. Lead in our fruit juice? WTF? Also to note, they tested the items based on serving size, not based on how much an infant or child would actually consume in a day. So our kids are getting a lot more lead than they should. Note that Gerber is on there!!! I will be switching my choice of juice for my LO (and myself since I breastfeed) right away!

Here's a link to the list of items tested and which passed and which didn't:
