Just in time for the holiday shopping season, a public-interest group alleges that unsafe amounts of lead have been found in fidget spinners sold at Target. The center circle of the "Fidget Wild Premium Spinner Metal" was tested for 1,300 ppm of lead and the arm tested for 520 ppm of lead. The federal requirement for children's toys states that lead content can not exceed 100 ppm.
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. "So, Target needs to immediately stop selling the toys that contain high amounts of lead, and issue a recall for those that they've already sold".
CPSC could hold the products to federal standards for lead if classified as a toy.
Timothy Nolan, president of the company that supplies these fidget spinners, Bulls-I Toy, wrote in response to the report that the fidget spinners in question are "general use products" and therefore "are not in violation of any mandated federal regulations".
