The response from Target and the manufacturer has been the same: the particular spinners aren't intended for children under the age of 14.
PIRG found 33,000 parts per million (ppm) of lead in the center circle and 22,000 ppm in the arm of one model called "Fidget Wild Premium Spinner Brass".
Non-profit PIRG Education Fund conducted the lab tests and reported that two fidget spinners that were being sold by the retailer contained levels of lead that far exceeded the legal limit allowed for children's toys, Business Insider said. No children should but the spinners or small pieces in their mouths and should play with them away from their faces, the CPSC said.
You may want to consider putting the fidget spinner down.
Lead poisoning is most unsafe for young children. Incredibly, Target and its distributor Bulls i Toy defend their inaction by pointing to the Consumer Product Safety Commission's (CPSC) declaration that fidget spinners are not technically "children's products" subject to legal limits for lead. But Target doesn't appear to be backing down, not even to claims that they should move the fidget spinners to another section of the store.
Harold Chizick, a spokesperson for Bulls-I-Toys, released this statement, "Safety is one of our top priorities".
Lead exposure can be extremely harmful for children due to its developmental impacts.
When USPIRG notified Target about the lead levels it detected, the retailer said it wouldn't take the spinners off the shelves. The product sells for $19.99.
"The two fidget spinners cited in their letter are clearly marked on the package as 'appropriate for customers ages 14 and older, ' and are not marketed to children", Target spokesman Lee Henderson toldCBS News. It's not the first time the toy has been investigated for safety reasons.
The letter continued: "If necessary, force may be used to relocate those who refuse to move voluntarily for your own sake". Mr Albanese said the centre was supposed to be a processing centre, but instead became a place of indefinite detention.
