Although regulatory agencies like the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have failed to take any action, some advocacy groups and twitchy folks like me have argued that our children cannot be knowingly exposed to any amount of "safe" lead, especially not on the insides of lunchboxes!
Good news: Many lunch box manufacturers, after being sued, are "voluntarily" removing the lead tainted lining from their materials.
Bad news: We can't just keep our kids from eating old paint chips and expect them to be lead-free.
Other tinfoil hat worthy appearances of dangerous and even deadly lead in children's products lately:
