Lead in balsamic vinegar

lazycookJanuary 16, 2014

I was shocked to find that the balsamic vinegar that I bought had a warning on the bottle that it contained lead. It is O Organic Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Italy. When I was at the supermarket today I checked other balsamic vinegars and did not see the warning on them. So what's the deal? Should I get rid of my vinegar?

Can you return it or exchange it for another?

Is there allowable lead in our water?

The allowable level for lead in water (set by EPA ) is 15 ppb (parts per billion)

Maybe that's why the product was allowed to be imported.
