A visit to Washington, D.C., could be hazardous to the health of your children, especially if you are feeling generous.

Lead in Jewelry and Other Products Sold in Capitol Gift Shops

From press release: “Rep. Waxman and Sen. Obama today released a report finding that products from the Capitol gift shop contain dangerous amounts of lead. Jewelry and other inexpensive children’s gifts sold in the four Capitol gift shops contain enough lead to cause permanent medical harm and may be fatal to small children if ingested. Rep. Waxman and Sen. Obama call on the Bush Administration to ban lead in children’s products.”
