CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH has found the toxic metal lead in 13 brass mouthpieces used to play instruments like trumpets, saxophones, and trombones. CEH sent legal notices to 12 manufacturers and two retailers for failing to warn customers of this health threat, as required by California’s consumer protection law Prop 65. Prop 65 identifies lead as a metal that causes cancer and reproductive harm. Guitar Center Inc. was found to sell 10 of the lead tainted products.
