Are you a dental health professional with one of these lead-lined dental film storage boxes in your office?

The federal Food & Drug Administration has issued a public health notification about the potential for harmful exposure to lead from dental films stored in these containers.

These boxes should be removed from use and disposed properly. Discard any dental film that has been put in these boxes. None of that film should be used.
