SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah Rep. Jim Matheson is sponsoring a food safety bill that would require the makers of ceramic dishes to include a warning label about possible lead poisoning.

The House is slated to vote next week on the measure.

Matheson has pushed for the warning label for more than a year, after hearing from Utah families whose children were stricken with lead poisoning linked to their dinnerware.
