Conatins lead?!

My SS got a toy for his bday from his grandma and the instructions say " Contains lead, keep out of mouth also toy will produce lead dust, keep out of reach of children".

It's a freaking child's toy!!! Why the hell would it say keep away fro children. Plus I always thought it was illegal to sell toys with lead in it that's why they are always recalled. Is it legal as long as they list that it contains it?

We can't return in because the grandma cut out the scan thing.

  • Wow! That's strange...especially since it's for kids..I would take it back to the store and tell them that you want your money back because it does have lead in it...the store has to take it back, tell them it was a birthday present or something
