Abstract

Dr. J. D. Martin, Louisiana State Department of Health, has reported the occurrence of 3 cases of lead poisoning in 1 family. The patients experienced abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and metallic taste from 45 minutes to 2 hours after eating duck. The duck had been killed in the southwestern part of the State and had been stored in a freezer for approximately 2 months prior to consumption. Chemical analysis of the remaining portion of the meat revealed the presence of 0.12 percent of lead (as Pb).
