Batteries causing lead poisoning in cattle - levels of lead in meat and milk

Var Foda 45(1-2): 15-18
Batteries causing lead poisoning in cattle - levels of lead in meat and milk
Lead poisoning, occurring in cattle after ingestion of lead from burnt storage batteries, provided a unique opportunity to study the transfer of lead into milk and tissues. Milk and blood samples were taken during a period of 18 wk from cows without acute symptoms of lead poisoning. Two wk after the accidental exposure, lead levels in milk exceeded the max. levels of lead in milk regulated in the Swedish National Food Administration's Ordinance; 0.02 mg/kg.
