The Lead Commission Makes its Ruling

The Lead Commission decided to keep the lead levels for toys at 600 ppm. All Michigan toy retailers will be required to pull any toys that exceed 600 ppm off of their toy shelves effective March 2.

Current Federal law only bans lead paint at levels higher than 600 ppm. While the Michigan law is an improvement, the American Academy of Pediatrics says that any toys exceeding levels of 45 ppm are dangerous to children.
