The Dark Side of Dark Chocolate

Consumer Reports testing has discovered worrisome levels of lead or cadmium in dark chocolate bars — heavy metals linked to a host of health problems in children and adults.

And five of the 28 chocolate bars we tested had high levels of both heavy metals: Trader Joe’s, Lily (owned by Hershey’s), Green and Black’s (owned by Mondelez) and two bars by Theo. Join us in calling on these companies to reduce lead and cadmium in their chocolate – our tests found lower levels in other brands, so we know it can be done!
