Build-A-Bear Accessory Has 10 Times the Legal Lead Limit, Says Consumer Health Group
The"Collectibear Pin" (pictured here) has 10 times the federal limit for lead in children's toys, according to the CEH.
Build-A-Bear refutes that claim. In an article in today's Post-Dispatch the toy company says that the pin in question passed "rigorous testing" last year.
This isn't the first time CEH has leveled charges at Build-A-Bear.
In 2008 the agency sued Build-A-Bear over claims that a dog collar charm manufactured by the company contained dangerously high levels of lead and other carcinogens.
