American Association for Justice Urges Lead Free Children's Jewelry

American Association for Justice, formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, has sent out an urgent call to the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban children’s metal jewelry containing lead. Lead, as we all know, is a dangerous substance that can cause brain damage, developmental delay, and hyperactivity in young children. The Centers for Disease Control reported that in 2003 a four-year-old Oregon boy died after swallowing a toy necklace and in February 2006 a four year old Minnesota boy died after ingesting a metallic charm.
