Special Note: The February 2023 issue of Consumer Reports® looks at “Dangerous Heavy Metals” found in some dark chocolate. Researchers reported that some dark chocolates may contain cadmium and/or lead at levels which could put you at risk if you eat more than an ounce per day on a regular basis. The risk is higher for pregnant women and young children. Mary D reached out to Equal Exchange and they report that they follow guidelines from the Consumer Reports logoEuropean Union and test every batch before they accept it. Read the full article. Any questions, you can contact Mary D.
