You may remember that a few months ago we posted about a recall for the “Ten months ago” bagged cereal that contained a potentially hazardous metal.
A lot of people thought it was a joke.
But we have a new report that the bag of frozen corn that came with the cereal has actually been found to contain lead, which is not safe.
And the lead was not stored in a sealed container in a vacuum seal.
The lead was actually in a container of rice, which was sold in a box labeled “garbage.”
The lead could be released in the rice, according to a report in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.
The study was published on the website of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering, and the lead levels were not enough to cause harm.
“The findings highlight the need for rigorous, long-term testing of rice products for lead exposure,” the study said.
The report does not say when the lead might have been found, but the USDA said the lead level was likely in a package of rice that was sold to people who were not regularly eating rice.
“In addition, the rice was not marketed to the general public and has not been marketed to children, pregnant women, the elderly, or anyone with kidney or heart disease,” the USDA added.
“Additionally, the Rice Council of America, the largest rice group in the country, has identified the risk of lead poisoning in its food and beverages as a health concern.”
The USDA did not say whether the lead in the Rice Corn Meal was the same as the lead found in the “sling-bagged salad” recall.
The bag of rice did contain about 3.8 grams of lead, or about one-fifth of the recommended daily allowance of lead for a healthy person, the National Academy of Sciences said.
It was the most lead-related recall in U.S. history.
The Rice Council said the Rice Board of Advisors is working to reduce the lead content of rice to 0.1 parts per billion by 2020.
