Ceramic Pottery from Chinatown with Lead contamination

Lead Contamination Found in Ceramic Pottery - NYTimes.com:
"Dr. O’Malley wondered if the same held true with the pottery in Philadelphia’s Chinatown.

The answer, he and a group of researchers has found, is yes. While the ceramics’ sources are not yet known — and neither is the extent of their distribution — the contamination that Dr. O’Malley and his group found in the cooking and eating utensils appeared to be severe enough to cause health problems."
