Lead & Printed Materials

A contact today said he is writing a brochure on lead exposure
issues for children in the home. One of the areas he wondered
about was in printed materials coming into the home. He presumed a
federal ban on lead in printing inks. I told him not so as far as I
knew. But I also said I didn't see this as a source of lead exposure
for children because most of the lead in inks is gone. However, I am
waiting for one of you to tell me where my thinking or knowledge is
wrong.

Thanks
