Cadmium, Lead, and Other Metals in Children’s Jewelry
Cadmium, Lead, and Other Metals in Children’s Jewelry (Number of pages: 7) (Publication Size: 690KB)
|Description||In 2015, the Department of Ecology (Ecology) evaluated the presence of cadmium, lead, and five other toxic metals in children’s jewelry. The study was carried out to provide data for assessing compliance with the Washington State Children’s Safe Products Act (CSPA).
Ecology purchased 159 items of inexpensive children’s jewelry and screened them for metals with an X-ray fluorescence analyzer. From the screenings, 38 samples showing the presence of cadmium or lead were submitted for additional laboratory testing. Product information from 13 laboratory-tested samples were forwarded for compliance review, including product samples found to contain more than 5% cadmium or lead.
