A new report from researchers states that 17 out of 55 products purchased contained traces of mercury.  Wow. 

It appears that the processing that is required to make high fructose corn syrup can leave traces of mercury.  The really scary part is that as you read down the list of products mentioned in the link below, you can’t help but think that these are products that are regularly consumed by children.  HOWEVER, this article states that the food industry maintains that the products are safe.  Hmmmm….  I wouldn’t recommend that you stock up on any of these products or any processed food containing high fructose corn syrup.
