QUESTION: Use of lead in PVC Lunch Boxes, 18 Mar 2006, USA
Hello. I'm concerned about the use of PVC with a lead additive in lunchboxes, especially those sold by the Gap. Below is the email I received from the Gap when I questioned the lead content of their lunchboxes.
Dear Ms. Lindner,
Do you have any information on this subject? Thank you.
