ND Issues Warning About Lead Contaminated Meat

North Dakota Health Officials Issue Warning Over Lead-Contaminated Meat

Pregnant Women and Children in High Risk Group
Health officials in North Dakota have issued a recommendation that wild game killed with lead bullets not be consumed by pregnant women and children younger than 6.

The warning is based on findings from a study released on Wednesday, which evaluated lead levels in the blood of more than 700 state residents. The results indicated higher than normal lead levels in those who had eaten game killed with lead bullets.

The study was done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and is the first to show a connection between lead traces in wild game and higher levels of lead in people who consume wild game.

The study follows on from an earlier finding by a physician conducting tests by CT scan, which showed lead in samples of donated deer meat. This prompted warnings to be issued in the Spring by North Dakota and other states, about eating venison killed with lead bullets. As an additional precaution, food pantries were ordered by North Dakota's health department to throw out donated venison.
