I agree with this and didn't read the whole thing (the article/list) so didn't notice if they were actually targeting specific companies. What I found interesting and very surprising was that some products on the list were organic/Whole Foods type. Not sure if they mentioned where the lead actually came from but I'm guessing packaging. If nothing else, maybe this will prompt companies (not just the big ones but in general) to examine their production process to see if something can be done to make the food safer.

Since there is reason to suspect that this user and CDMama12 are the same person and they have failed to repsond to pm's asking for clarification, both accounts are being banned.

Packaging they can control. Lead is a naturally occurring element in the earth, and I would suspect it's coming from the ground and the water where the plants grow.
