Made in China---Wegmans pulls bags over lead concerns

It is true. You no longer have to worry just about contamination of food, but grocery bags, too. Wegmans has stopped selling two kinds of reusable shopping bags after testing proved some might have elevated levels of lead. They reported that the "green pea" and the holiday 2009 are safe to continue using them. The primary concern is properly disposing of the bags. Wegmans will not recall them, but when the customer finds that they are no longer useful, they should return them to customer service for replacement. Maybe it is just me, but I think if it is harmful to dispose them, it may be harmful to use them. I am not calling them liars, but big companies today do LIE to people all the time. Another thing to think about is that if you use those reusable bags, please put your meat in a plastic bag before you place it in your reusable bag. If you don't you can be sure of one thing. Your reusable bag is getting coated with clear chicken slime and each time you use it, your other groceries are contaminated by that. Why don't they do these tests before they sell the bags? Do you have one of those colorful bags from Wegmans and are you going to keep using it? http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2010/09/wegmans_pulls_reusable_bags_ov.html

Who would think you would ever have to worry about the bags you put your food in.
