Lead in your chocolate

The FDA has stated that the "safe" amount of lead to consume is below 0.5 ppm (parts per million). Conversely, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has not found threshold for exposure in which there are no harmful effects.

Therefore, it is disturbing to hear that milk chocolate contains up to 0.222 ppm and dark chocolate up to 0.275ppm.


Further Analysis

If anyone comes across a brand that advertises their chocolate does not contain lead... please share!!!! Not the chocolate... just your info.
