White House Garden Tests Positive For Lead

White House garden tests positive for lead



The White House says its high-profile garden on the South Lawn has tested positive for lead although it is not at dangerous levels.

White House spokeswoman Katie McCormick-Lelyveld said Thursday that tests on the soil in the White House garden detected lead levels of 93 parts per million. Soil is considered unsafe for growing vegetables when it reaches more than 500 parts per million.

First lady Michelle Obama planted the garden on the South Lawn this spring with local schoolchildren. Produce from it is used in the White House kitchens and donated to area groups.

McCormick-Lelyveld says the White House will continue to grow vegetables in its garden, which food activists sought and praised.


Wild Thing's comment......

Can I say Get the lead out Michelle. heh heh

Note to White House ...You are supposed to test the soil BEFORE you dig the garden.

So the Obama creeps are serving schoolkids lead tainted food.

I wonder if it's from the Musket Balls? You know I am just wanting so bad to make a joke about that. LOL

Maybe if she stops sitting on the ground the lead will stop leaching out, if you know what I mean.

If obama keeps moving toward a dictatorship, there may be a lot more lead in the White House.

Amen, Tom, and that won't be insignificant like the 93 parts per million. Who had the bright idea to waste money on a lead test anyway ?

I wondered about the Lincoln connection that is so fascinating with TOTUS, he ain't no Hebrew, he be Hamas. Sarai's hand maiden Hagar bore Abraham his first born son Ishmael(Obama). I'll say it, it's that gotdamm pickaninny show garden that Michelle planted and this is a greenie photo op. OK EPA quarantine the entire site and hit that superfund, tear it up and move it to Hyenas Port,Massatwoshitts.
