Lead Week, 13 #Pbweekmia

iceland-food-you-can-trust-copyThis is Lead Week on this blog.

Just a few notes as background.

The Red Grouse samples whose analyses are reported here were bought in Iceland Stores in September 2015 and sent off for analysis in October. I received the results from the laboratory a week ago today. I was quite busy at the end of last week, and the results took a bit of assimilating. I’m just pointing this out so that you can see that the timing of these blogs was not really in my control, and I have put these data into the public domain as soon as feasibly possible.

It is also worth pointing out that you could have done the same thing, as could the Food Standards Agency or Iceland Foods themselves.  Those organisations promoting the sale of game meat could also have carried out tests of lead levels in game meat. It seems a little strange to me, that it was left to me to bring these data to your attention.

  1. These investigations cost money, Mark, and are obviously not underwritten by Iceland or grouse moor owners! Is there a fund available for contributions? "Sponsor a grouse".

  2. Taken from shooting.co.uk website:-
    "Marks & Spencer and Sainsburys have put in orders with Yorkshire Game, Aldi has made a deal with Highland Game and Iceland are selling grouse from Scottish Kezie Foods. Morrisons have even launched a new brand – Wild as Nature Intended.

    It is certainly a market that supermarkets cannot fail to ignore. Over 40% of the public have stated that they are open to trying game and more people are becoming aware of the health benefits wild game offers, thanks to initiatives like the Countryside Alliance’s Game to Eat campaign.
