Hot Christmas Toys Aren't Dangerous After All: Consumer Group

Rate This

A consumer group that warned that some of the most popular toys for the holiday season are unsafe because of high levels of chemicals has issued a correction.

On Saturday, Good Guide said Zhu Zhu Pets' robotic hamsters and International Playthings' My First Purse had levels of the heavy metal antimony that exceeded U.S. government limits. The group also said unlawful limits of the chemical chromium were detected in the Bakugan 7-in-1 Maxus Helios and Fisher-Price's Laugh & Learn Laughing Farm.

But Good Guide said Monday that the chemicals found in the toys didn't exceed federal limits, the Associated Press reported.

The incorrect warning about antimony levels hasn't affected sales of Zhu Zhu pets, according to toy maker Cepia LLC. Spokesman Bruce Katz didn't divulge whether the company plans legal action against Good Guide, the AP said.
