Dangerously high levels of lead have been found in children’s products sold at Walmart and Target stores across the country, according to a California based consumer group. The Center for Environmental Health, which commissioned the tests, found lead exceeding allowable levels in Walmart products such as toy boxing gloves, toy foam jewelry beads and green and yellow beanbag chairs for toddlers. At Target, the center said it found two chairs with high lead levels, one of which had 70 times the legal limit for lead. Target has agreed to remove the chairs from its stores, according to the consumer group. Walmart is stopping sales of the producers in California and from Walmart.com and will “investigate the matter further,” according to Walmart officials.
