I believe that when people seek out and buy "RAW" or "Organic" products it is to avoid things like this to their best ability

I was on my 3rd container of this product when I learned about the consumer report on dangerous levels of heavy metals. I am deeply concerned because I was consuming this product at least once a day, believing that I was using something safe and nutritious. I found that this product, along with many others, are falsely promoted as clean and I can only imagine the damage being done to our bodies when ingesting it on a daily basis. I realize that this is partly due to this being a plant based protein powder and some amounts are naturally occurring and others are due to environmental pollution. However, I do not believe that should be an excuse to mislead or entirely ignore when marketing, selling, and manufacturing a product that has alarmingly high amounts of these substances. I believe that when people seek out and buy "RAW" or "Organic" products it is to avoid things like this to their best ability, I certainly know this is the case for me. By no means am I here to bash this product but I would like more responsibility and care to be taken on the manufactures part to fix this issue, or at least have to clearly label and inform consumers. Not only do I use this brand of protein powder, but I use their vitamins as well, my entire household does. So, I take this extremely personal! I admit I could have researched this more when looking to purchase supplements, I guess I fall into the category of naive and wanted to believe that brands that portray themselves as CLEAN really are, and I take my part of responsibility in that. I am not an expert in have no background in this type of thing but I do my best to make sure I am giving my family the best that I can, heck I even pay the price for it. At the end of the day, this is a much larger issue and more there need to be stricter requirements for labeling, regulating, etc. My only intention of this review is to bring awareness to other costumers, like myself, so that they may have the chance to be more informed before making the conscious decision to purchase this product.
