Are silver dragees killing us all? (REPOST)

AnneInMpls | Jan 13, 200606:55 PM     41

For years, my husband has refused to decorate cookies with silver dragees (those little silver BBs). He always points to the label, which says "for decoration only."

Now I hear that California stores can't sell them.
See http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi...

Are silver dragees safe to eat in small amounts? If not, what about that edible silver leaf on Indian desserts? And what about gold leaf and gold powder?

Thanks,
Anne
