Lead found in items at Wal-Mart, Target

LITTLE ROCK — Tests have revealed high levels of lead in children's products sold at Wal-Mart Stores and Target Corp., a consumer group working with the California Attorney General's Office said Wednesday.

The Oakland, Calif.-based Center for Environmental Health, which commissioned the tests, said lead exceeding allowable levels was found in Walmart products such as toy boxing gloves, toy foam jewelry beads, and green and yellow beanbag chairs for toddlers. At Target, the center said it found two chairs with high lead levels, one of which had 70 times the legal limit for lead.
