  QUESTION: Limits to lead in imported ceramic ware. 01 Dec 2003, Queensland Australia

alana[at] - She rang a shop where you buy white ceramic ware and paint it yourself and asked if they had a fact sheet on lead in ceramic ware and they said she'd have to come into the shop to pick up the fact sheet so she realized they were afraid of the scrutiny.

ANSWER: 02 Dec 2003
