FDA Warns Lunch Box Manufacturers

There are new developments in an investigation NewsChannel 11 first brought you last November. That's when we tested lunch boxes at a Lubbock pre-school for lead. Two out of the 21 lunch boxes we tested were positive for lead.

On Friday, The Food and Drug Administration sent out a warning to lunch boxes manufacturers. The warning tells manufacturers to stop using lead to make vinyl lunch boxes. The FDA says the boxes do not pose immediate danger but they're telling firms to find new manufacturing techniques.

Exposure to lead could cause learning disabilities and behavioral problems.
