California sues artificial grass-makers over dangerous lead content

 We have known for decades that lead is exceedingly dangerous to humans--and particularly to children.  This week, California brought a pollution case against Astro-Turf and two other manufacturers of artificial grass, contending that they contain an unsafe level of lead. 

Lead is used to enhance the green color of the turf and can be absorbed through the skin or orally after hands have touched the turf.  The lead is more readily available as the turf ages and produces more dust.  The suit was brought by California's Attorney General and local law enforcement authorities and joined by Los Angeles' City Attorney and the District Attorney for Solano County.  We imagine the turf at Boise State remains safe.
