Asbestos toys and crayons imported to the U.S. from China

This is awful! Seeing as our company is based in a border town, we know how easy this merchandise could make it into Canada.

"A consumer group has triggered an alert after asbestos was found in children's crayons and a toy lab kit. The products were imported into the U.S. from China and not checked by a range of major retail outlets."

"Crayons: Amscan Crayons, Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Crayons, Power Rangers Super Megaforce."

The toy science kits were: Edu Science Deluxe Forensics Lab Kit, Inside Intelligence Secret Spy kit."

  1. That is crazy that asbestos was found in children's toys and crayons. Something like this happening is not good at all and needs to be taken care of immediately. All of the items that have these traces of asbestos need to be disposed of and recalled as well. Having kids be exposed to asbestos at all is not a good thing at all.
