KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kansas City health officials say at least two area children have lead poisoning from a contaminated cosmetic product commonly used in Myanmar.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1fIOfrj ) the product, which is called Thanakha, and is also spelled ``thanaka'' or ``tanaka,'' is a yellowish paste made from tree bark that is worn on the face and arms to treat acne or as a sunscreen.
