After being investigated over tainted cookies, food industry giant settles for lack of excess lead warning

The Orange County Register reports that Mondelez International, formerly known as Kraft Foods, has settled a state investigation into claims the food industry giant sold ginger snap cookies in California that contained excess lead without a warning. “The levels of lead found in Nabisco’s Ginger Snap cookies posed a serious public health threat, potentially impacting the brain development of our children,” said California Attorney General Kamala Harris in a statement. “Parents need accurate information to make educated food choices for their children.”
