Balsamic Lead

No....Really.

Special Report: Some vinegars -- often expensive, aged balsamics -- contain a big dose of lead. Signs in grocery stores in California warn shoppers about exposure to lead in many balsamic and red wine vinegars. Experts say regularly consuming it may pose a risk, particularly to children. Eating one tablespoon a day of some vinegars can raise a young child’s lead level by more than 30 percent.
