  Site Information: Lawsuit warns of lead in balsamic vinegars / Group claims manufacturing process adds metal - SFGate - An environmental group has filed a lawsuit under the state's anti- toxics law against makers and sellers of some popular wine vinegars, alleging that they contain small amounts of the metal lead. The suit, filed by the Environmental Law Foundation of Oakland, 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 non-profit group wants retailers to require vinegar suppliers to provide tests proving that the products conform with a Proposition 65 safety level for lead. Prop. 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, requires that businesses warn consumers of unsafe exposure to chemicals on a state list of carcinogens and reproductive toxicants.
