Be Lead Free

Lead poisoning is undetectable and can cause irreversible damage. Protect your hive and get your child tested today!

There is no safe level of lead in the body. Lead is a hazardous substance that can get into the body by swallowing or inhaling lead-contaminated dust or materials. Young children are most vulnerable to the effects of lead because their bodies absorb a greater amount of it as they quickly grow and develop.

Where is lead found?

  • Lead-based paint in old houses
  • Soil and dust
  • Some pottery
  • Firing ranges
  • Certain foods
  • Imported vinyl mini-blinds
  • Some household items and toys
  • Some imported herbs and spices

Test your lead knowledge!
