    I have mine from Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. From what the article says, the plastic in Whole Foods may be a problem. Sigh.

    I saw an exposé awhile back, that tested for and found all sorts of nasty bacteria in those enviroloon status symbols.

    Personally, I still request the old school brown paper sacks.

    Yup. Screw the lead as they are really loaded with E-coli and other nasty microscopic critters.

    My "bags" have always been reusable and no lead yet. Let's just hope all those lovers husbands never find out, I'd like to keep em lead free. Not to mention the rest of me.......
