Lead in Single-Serving Juices

Several brands of single-serving juices and canned fruit products were found to contain lead levels above the limits established for children by the FDA.  Read more.

The Environmental Law Foundation conducted testing of many products in an independent laboratory.  A list of all products that exceeded the CA Proposition 65 lead limit is available here.  Note that it includes both organic and conventional products.

Think healthy, and think green.  Eliminate single-serving anything to reduce packaging, and read about the benefits of eating fruit rather than drinking juice.
