Description

Reporters at the Orange County Register perform an investigation into mexican candies which contain extremely high levels of lead. This six part series reveal that most mexican candies which are brought into the United States contain guajillo, a type of chilli. Though the fresh chilli itself has not been found to have high levels of lead, it's during the drying and grinding process high levels of lead exist. Investigators also tested the candy packages and specialty clay pots, which were decorated with a lead glaze.
