Baby Poisoned By Lead-Tainted Walmart Plates

A Utah child developed painful constipation after it was discovered that her family was using lead-tainted plates sold by Walmart. Investigators found the plates had lead levels of 11. Utah considers anything about 1 “unacceptable.”

The plates were sold under the name “Home Trends,” and while no longer on store shelves, are likely on some the shelves of some consumer’s cupboards. There’s been no recall for the plates.
