California sues Whole Foods, Trader Joe's for selling tainted goods
The state of California is suing Whole Foods markets, Trader Joe's and other stores for allegedly selling lead-tainted ginger and plum candies.
The lawsuit accuses the retailers of failing to alert customers to the lead which is a violation of Proposition 65. The law requires businesses to warn consumers about harmful toxins in food, toys, jewelry and other products.
Retailers aren't commenting on the suit, but Target has already pulled the products from its shelves.
