Consumer Reports Investigation Finds High Levels of Lead in Lunchables

An investigation by Consumer Reports has raised concerns regarding the safety of Lunchables, a popular prepackaged lunch product marketed for children. The investigation revealed that some Lunchables kits contained lead and other harmful contaminants, posing potential risks to children’s health. This comes amidst broader concerns about lead contamination in children’s food products, including recent issues with lead in children’s cinnamon applesauce products.

The investigation by Consumer Reports found that Lunchables, along with similar lunch and snack kits from other brands, contained potentially concerning levels of lead, phthalates, and sodium. Lead, a heavy metal, is particularly harmful, as even small amounts can cause developmental problems in children and health problems in adults, such as hypertension and kidney damage. Moreover, the risks associated with lead exposure are cumulative, emphasizing the importance of minimizing exposure, especially in children.

In response to their findings, Consumer Reports has taken proactive steps to address the issue, including petitioning the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to remove Lunchables from school lunch programs.
