significance of such findings has not been established, but the studies clearly indicate that perchlo-rate can enter lettuce, presumably from growing conditions in which perchlorate has contaminated water or soil.
Milk has also been shown to be subject to per-chlorate contamination. A small survey of seven milk samples purchased in Lubbock, Texas, indicated that perchlorate was present in all of the samples at levels ranging from 1.12 to 6.30 mg/l. To put such findings in perspective, the State of California has adopted an action level of 4 mg/l for perchlorate in drinking water, whereas the EPA has yet to establish a specific drinking water limit.
