Tests reveal high lead levels in multivitamins

Wednesday, January 24, 2007

A new report by ConsumerLab.com finds only 10 of 21 products tested meet the claims on their labels. Several of the multivitamin products tested contained high levels of lead, including one women's multivitamin that contained 15.3 micrograms of lead per daily dose--more than 10 times the amount of lead allowed without a warning label in the state of California.
