85 Percent of Children's Drinks Contain Lead Exceeding Federal Limits

More than 85 percent of children's drinks contain so much lead they may exceed federal limits for young children.

Both organic and conventional juices were included in the lead-tainted products.  Of 146 products, 125 were contaminated with enough lead in a single serving to require a warning label under California's Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act.

The New York Daily News reports:

“Besides juices in flavors like apple and grape, the products included fruit cocktail mixes, packaged pears and peaches and some baby food”.
