BALTIMORE - Baltimore City health officials found up to 2,400 times the maximum allowable lead level in jewelry sold by a local vendor.
The lead levels are so high, the Baltimore City Health Department has issued a Notice And Order To Remove Health Nuisance to Choice Corner, on West Lexington Street to prohibit the sale of two items of jewelry.
Those items were identified with a lead level in metal components above 100 parts per million. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has been alerted to the most recent findings.
