Some fidget spinners may contain dangerous amounts of lead

Target is pulling two fidget spinners from its shelves after a report found risky levels of lead in them.

The two fidget spinners in question, the "Fidget Wild Premium Spinner Brass" and the 'Fidget Wild Premium Spinner Metal, ' are no longer available to buy on Target.com and are now being removed from stores.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) requires that all children's toys can't have a total lead level of 100 ppm or higher.

The report states there's more than 300 times the legal limit for lead in children's products in some of their brass and metal spinners.

However, CPSC commissioner Elliot F. Kaye said, "Seems obvious fidget spinners are toys and should comply with all applicable federal safety standards".

Exposure to even very small amounts of lead can seriously endanger a child's health and can lead to brain damage, slowed development, hearing and speech problems, and other issues, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The U.S. Public Interest Research Group tested 12 fidget spinners sold at Target stores across the country.

Target initially responded by claiming that the fidget spinners were not children's toys, so the federal laws on lead levels did not apply. The fidget spinners in question are marketed to kids "ages 14+" on the box, and Target emphasizes that they did not violate any laws by selling them as "general use" products.
