It has been more than a year since Neuroscience for Kids reported about lead in children's toys and jewelry. Within the past year, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced more recalls of these dangerous products. Lead poses a health hazard if it is eaten and it is toxic to many organs of the body. It is especially dangerous because it can damage the brain and peripheral nerves. Lead can affect anyone, but children are especially at risk because they are still growing rapidly.
For specific product numbers and descriptions, please visit the CPSC recall Web site. The CPSC recommends that these products should not be handled or used. Adults should return the items to the retailer for a refund or replacement.
