Shame on Target, U.S. Government Fines Them for Selling Toys with Toxic Levels of Lead

Target has violated a ban on lead toys, which has been in place for 30 years, and has been fined $600,000 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for selling these toxic toys to our children. Many would think that this is just a drop in the bucket for a large corporation such as Target. The commission uncovered that Target “knowingly” imported and sold the toys in addition to neglecting to take adequate action to ensure that no toys or children’s products would bear lead-containing paint.

Target denies these awful and damaging allegations. The toys were made in China and sold between May 2006 and August 20007 for prices from $3 to $10 dollars in Target stores countrywide. Toys affected include Kool Toyz Products, Anima – Bamboo Collection Games, Happy Giddy Gardening Tools and Sunny Patch Chair.

It is unacceptable that we still have to question stores that we trust to do the right thing and ensure that the products they are putting on their shelves are safe for consumers, especially products intended for our beloved children.
