Consumer groups are asking the FDA to get lead out of hair dye.

Lead acetate can be found in two hair dye brands for men. It's used as a color additive.

Although the dye is targeted for adult men, consumer groups are afraid of what could happen if children get their hands on the dye.

Grecian Formula -- one of the brands that uses the additive -- says, "lead acetate has been used safely as a color additive" based on scientific studies.
