Fidget Spinners Sold At Target Contain Lead: Report
Fidget spinners are one of the hottest new trends of the year, but ahead of the holiday shopping season, a new report by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, a consumer advocacy organization, says testing found unsafe levels of lead in some.
U.S. PIRG, a public advocacy group, released a report on Thursday detailing the amount of lead in the toys and demanding Target and Bulls i Toy remove the products and issue a public statement on the alleged high levels of lead in the toys.
USA Today said the company could not provide an estimate on how numerous popular fidget spinner toys it will have to remove from stores. The Fidget Wild Premium Spinners are labeled age 14 and over.
The federal legal limit on lead in children's products manufactured after August 2011 is 100 parts per million for any accessible parts, with an exception for metal components of bicycles, which are not supposed to have more than 300 parts per million of lead.
The watchdog group is calling on USA government safety organizations to change the classification of fidget spinners so they will have to meet federal regulations for children's products.

A toy that spun out of control in popularity is now being called into question for its potential lead levels. The spinners were not required to meet federal lead standards.
Target and Bulls-I-Toys do not plan to take any action because the spinners aren't technically considered children't products by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
"All fidget spinners have play value as children's toys regardless of labeling", Cook-Shultz said.
Target responded to concerns, saying in a statement that the company is "committed to providing high quality and safe products to our guest and we closely review all product safety claims that are brought to our attention".
