Fidget Spinners Sold At Target Contain Lead

Mom's blog posts on fidget spinners' lead levels caught safety group's attention
The U.S. Public Interest Research Group Education Fund has asked Des Moines-based distributor Bulls I Toy LLC and Target stores to pull certain fidget spinners from the market because of tests that found lead levels that could harm children.
The circle center of the brass Fidget Wild Premium Spinner tested for 33,000 parts per million (ppm) of lead. The metal spinner tested at 13 times acceptable lead levels.
Target officials say stores will continue to sell the products and argue they don't have to follow the acceptable limit because the gadgets are not toys intended for children.
Target says the items are not classified as toys, so they don't have to follow lead standards for children's products.
"The toxic fidget spinners are still available both in toy aisles at Target stores and on its website", the organization 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".
"The two fidget spinners cited are clearly marked on the package as 'appropriate for customers ages 14 and older, ' and are not marketed to children", a Target spokesman said in an email to the Post. "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 manufacturer of the specific model, Bulls-I-Toy, wrote in a statement: "There are no mandatory CPSC requirements for it". "And, yes, they are toys". The retailer, which changed the web description of the product midday Thursday to emphasize that it is meant for consumers over the age of 14 (rather than for ages 6 and up, as originally advertised), took all mention of the spinners off its site by the end of Thursday.
The watchdog group is calling on US government safety organizations to change the classification of fidget spinners so they will have to meet federal regulations for children's products.
Interim CPSC Chairwoman Anne Marie Buerkle also warned that light-up spinners contain lithium coin batteries that can cause severe internal burns, if swallowed, and have been the source of fire warnings.
The U.S. Public Interest Research Group said that the distinction is illogical.
