It is possible, especially if there was a fire where these elements where present.

The "active" ingredients are lead, and sulphuric acid. The other parts are there to keep everything in place and avoid the dangerous acid from spilling (like the plastic cover), and to provide electrical contacts (some metal parts).

Sulfuric acid is the only acid commonly used in batteries. You may have heard of "lead-acid" batteries, but those are two separate parts of the battery: the lead part and the (sulfuric) acid part.
