Firms Agree to Lead Paint Fines

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Nine manufacturers of children’s products will pay  fines  for selling items that violated the federal lead paint ban in settlements with Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).

The following firms have agreed to the settlements:

  • Cardinal Distributing Co. Inc., of Baltimore, Maryland: $100,000
  • Dollar General Corp., of Goodlettsville, Tennessee: $100,000
  • Family Dollar Stores Inc., of Matthews, North Carolina: $75,000
  • Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma: $50,000
  • First Learning Company Ltd., of Hong Kong: $50,000
  • Michaels Stores Inc., of Irving, Texas: $45,000
  • A&A Global Industries Inc., of Cockeysville, Maryland: $40,000
  • Raymond Geddes & Co, of Baltimore, Maryland: $40,000
  • Downeast Concepts Inc., of Yarmouth, Maine: $30,000

These nine firms’ products were recalled in 2007 and 2008, and include items such as toys, children’s metal jewelry, children’s pens, metal water bottles, pencil pouches, sunglasses, and children’s Halloween pails and baskets. Tests revealed that paint or surface coatings on these children’s products contained lead in excess of 600 ppm, or 0.06 percent, by weight. One firm’s testing revealed that its products contained surface coatings with nearly 60 percent lead. In 1978, a federal ban was put in place that prohibited toys and other children’s articles from having more than 0.06 percent lead (by weight) in paints or surface coatings.
Lead can be toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health consequences. For instance, exposure to lead can cause brain and nervous system damage, behavioral and learning problems, slowed growth, hearing problems, headaches, mental and physical retardation, and behavioral and other health problems in children and unborn children. Even at very low levels, lead is harmful to children’s health and, at elevated blood lead levels, children experience neurological problems, anemia, lower IQ scores, and shortened attention spans. At elevated levels, children can also suffer from comas, seizures, and death.
