Book Recall

I was snooping around the internet and ran across this article about a recall on all children’s books previous to 1986.  The reason?  Unsafe levels of lead.

You’ve got to see this for yourself…

Then post your thoughts here.  Do you think there is really lead in the ink?  Will you participate in the recall?  What is your local library doing?

    Wow, that is incredible. I have so many of these old books at home. And our antiquated library is full of them too.

    You have got to be kidding! How many books would a child have to ingest before there was a medical problem linked to lead? I’ve got a feeling there would be bigger problems before that surfaced. Dogs have been chewing up books for years. What is this world coming to?
    Thanks for putting up the link–maybe if enough people shout about the lunacy, maybe someone with authority really will stand up and say, “This is stupid!”
