Q&As: Vinyl Lunch Boxes
Q: Recent news reports have indicated that there are dangerous levels of lead in kid lunch boxes, is this correct?
A: CPSC staff has tested samples of childrenŸ??s lunch boxes for accessible lead and found no instances of hazardous levels. The staff tested the inside and outside of each lunch box and the preliminary results were consistently below one microgram (one millionth of a gram) of lead. This is an extremely low level of lead and would not present a health hazard to children.
