Quote of the Day - He who wants to blame sometimes finds the sugar sour.
According to Prop 65 News, however, an environmental group, the Environmental Law Foundation, filed a lawsuit under Prop 65 against makers and sellers of some popular wine vinegars, alleging that they contain small amounts of the metal lead.
ELF says lead can contaminate wine vinegar in the manufacturing process, and that the highest concentrations are found in Modena-style balsamic vinegar, a dark, rich vinegar favored by gourmet cooks.
The attorney who represents the wine vinegar manufacturers and importers in the suit, said that lead occurs naturally in the soil, is taken up by the grapes used to make the wine vinegar and, therefore, is not regulated by Prop. 65.
Where did they think the lead came from?
