Just for fun here at Kathy’s Remodeling Blog, we decided to check how many products have been recalled lately for dangerously high levels of lead. As you know, lead is very dangerous when inhaled or ingested and causes brain damage and learning disabilities in children. As if life wasn’t hard enough. In adults, it can cause fatigue and high blood pressure.
This list is astounding. If you have small kids and want to check toys and others things for lead, we recommend LeadCheck swabs, which you can get at Home Depot.
(By the way, the holiday figurines shown here were sold at Home Depot and recalled for high lead content. Small world, huh?)
Here’s the list of recalls we came up with:
There’s way more, but I got tired and ran out of time. See for yourself.
