The suspect bags are not made in Madagascar or Morocco. They are made in....ta dum....China!
None of the news reports state how much lead was found in any bag.
They just talk about the possibility of lead "rubbing or flaking off into food." Or the bags accumulating in landfills to the point where the lead would become a "health issue" by seeping into the groundwater.
Let's ignore the bacterial growth issue for now. I have an idea; how about a washable cotton tote or a basket?
Guaranteed to be lead-free. 100% Organic. And significantly easier on your eyes... Amazing, our world. In our food and in our merchandise, why is there this penchant for the manufactured and the overly-processed? How about just the good old basic stuff? Thank you for listening. I will step off my soap box now ;)
