These are snippets from another thread that wandered into this topic, copied and pasted.

Bob Niland: Yes, anything with chocolate these days either needs specific CL testing, or a credible maker statement on Cd, Pb and As. The FDA does not have your back on this (well, they do, but it only explains why there’s a knife there).

Kathy: I use cocoa powder every day in my prebiotic shake and will need to replenish soon.  Any recommendations?  Thanks.

Bob Niland: 

Just checking CL on that, the answer is: none of the above.

They flunked 100% of the powders they tested, due to cadmium, and more than a few of the bars, nibs and extracts (for Cd, Pb, or misrepresented flavanols).

What to do about this probably needs to be its own thread.

So, Bob, here’s its own thread. ;-)
