In brief: House '78 or earlier
Houses built before 1978 may have lead based paint.
Other lead sources: candies and some traditional home remedies from mexico and india; hot tap water for cooking; certain containers or cookware; imported toys or products . See lead recalls at http://www.Cdc.Gov/nceh/lead/recalls/default.Htm.
