The US Public Interest Research Group revealed that some of the spinners sold at Target contain high levels of lead. For the "Fidget Wild Premium Spinner Brass", the center circle tested for 33,000 ppm of lead, and the arm tested for 22,000 ppm of lead.
Lab results showed that two fidget spinners now sold at Target contained extremely high levels of lead, well over the federal legal limit of 100 parts per million.
The legal limit for lead is 100 parts per million.
Awful timing for Target just before the holiday season, as it faces a major problem with its hugely popular fidget spinner supply.
But Target and the manufacturer say that particular spinner is recommended for ages 14 and older, meaning that CPSC lead restrictions do not apply, as products marketed to people over the age of 12 have no specific lead-level requirements. According to a consumer advocacy group, two fidget spinners supplied to Target by Iowa-based Bulls-i-Toy contain lead at up to 330 times the federal legal limit for toys.
"As a result, the fidget spinners identified are not regulated as toys or children's products and are not required to meet children's product standards". The Fidget Wild Spinner Premium Brass is also being sold on Target's website.
PIRG Education Fund is calling for the toys to be pulled from stores and for a recall to be issued.
Exposure to children is damaging because it can impact development, and any amount of lead in a child's blood is unsafe. "They are not defined by the CPSC as toys".
"The buck has to stop with someone".
"Saying fidget spinners aren't toys defies common sense, as millions of parents whose kids play with spinners can tell you,"said Kara Cook-Schultz, toxics director for U.S. PIRG".
"All fidget spinners have play value as children's toys regardless of age labeling".
