Feds launch investigation of lead-containing drinking glasses.

Feds launch investigation of lead-containing drinking glasses.

The AP (11/22) reported that the US Consumer Product Safety Commission "said it was collecting samples of all glasses cited in an ongoing Associated Press investigation into dangerous metals in children's merchandise, generally those containing the more-dangerous toxin cadmium." Thus far, two companies have recalled roughly 160,000 of the superhero designed glasses, on which tests revealed "that colored designs in a range of glasses contain high levels of lead or were made in such a way that lead or cadmium could escape and contaminate the hands of someone handling them." CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson said the agency's investigation "would extend beyond the superhero and Oz glasses to include others cited by AP 'that have decorations that children would be attracted to.'"
