BREAKING: Tainted Christmas

Don’t wrap that bracelet yet. Apparently, tainted toys were just the beginning.

The L.A. Times reports on a kids’ jewelry recall due to “600 times the legal limit for lead contamination.” Yikes.

Lead-laced rings, bracelets, barrettes and necklaces were among the items purchased in recent weeks by secret shoppers from the state Department of Toxic Substances. In addition to Macy’s and the Gap Kids stores, regulators also found items at “Hello Kitty” outlets, Dollar Tree, Marshalls, and at a shop at Universal Studios.

Did you know we had a state Department of Toxic Substances? Joker would be proud.
