Fake Halloween Teeth Contain Dangerous Amounts of Lead

In a late Halloween day recall, the Centers for Disease Control has issued a recall of fake Halloween teeth that contain excessive amount of lead. The teeth, sold as Ugly Teeth, have been sold for the past year and sales exceed tens of thousands of product. Once again, the product was manufactured in China. According to a story in the NY Times, the lead discovery was made by a chemistry professor at Ashland University in Ohio. The fake teeth contained 100 times the amount of lead considered safe for public use.
On the same day, the CDC also announced a toy recall of products sold by Toys R Us. The recall included four Elite Operations toy sets: the Command Patrol Center, the Barracuda Helicopter, the Super Rigs set and a three-pack of eight-inch figures. These toys were also manufactured in China.
