ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - A warning for all parents when buying gifts for children this year -- harmful products with high amounts of lead and other toxins have been found in toys, clothes, and everyday products.
A local consumer group, Empire State Consumer Project (ESCP), found the popular fidget spinner to contain lead. When consumed, children can not only choke on the small parts, but experience seizures, ticks, OCD behavior, and anxiety.
Judy Braiman, from ESCP, says parents need to look at the product labels.
"We're going to petition the government to take a look at labeling now because they're making toys that could be dangerous or have heavy metals and all they have to do is slap a label on it '14+' which would be considered adult, according to the government."
