U.S. PIRG Toxics Director Kara Cook-Shultz toldCBS News that the Target website described the two spinner models for ages "6 and up" on the retailer's website, but the product page now reflects a "14 and older" description. The retailer argued instead that the spinners don't meet the standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission for the definition of a toy, and pointed out that the spinners are clearly marked as being for ages 14 and up. The lead level in another model, the Fidget Wild Premium Spinner in Metal, tested at 1,300 parts per million.
We have seen a fair number of trendy toys come and go, with last year's hoverboards taking a step back amid lots of product issues, and now fidget spinners are the "it" thing.
PIRG has listed the two spinners on their website as unsafe and has even started a petition to get the toys removed from stores.
You may want to consider putting the fidget spinner down.
Lab results showed two fidget spinners contained extremely high levels of lead, well over the federal legal limit of 100 parts per million (ppm) for lead in children's products. New research shows they can also be risky.
Per the Washington Post, a Target spokesman said in an email that the company isn't breaking any laws because, technically, the fidget spinner is neither marketed as a toy nor is it technically for children.
Anything targeted at ages 12 or above isn't considered a toy, and the fidget spinner in question says right on the packaging that it's intended for "ages 14+".
Lead exposure is damaging for young children because of its impact on development.
Target said their product safety team reviewed the US PIRG's test results and decided there was no need to pull the products from its shelves or website.
"We can't sit idly by while children play with these toxic toys".
"Even small amounts of lead in toys can be ingested when transferred from fingers to mouth or from fingers to food", said national lead expert Helen Binns, MD, pediatrician at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Professor of Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
