A simple and rapid method for determination of intentional contamination with heavy metals in foods using inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) has been developed. The heavy metals were extracted with sulfuric acid in a disposable tube using a homogenizer. The extract was diluted with 1% HNO(3) solution and analyzed with ICP-AES. Recovery tests of 9 metals, As, Cd, Cr, Hg, Mn, Pb, Sb, Sn, and Tl, from 12 foods were performed, and gave acceptable recovery (71-107%) with low relative standard deviation (1-11%). The time required for conversion of 12 samples to test solutions was approximately 2 hr. This method could be useful for identification of heavy metals involved in food poisoning cases.
