Lead Bear, Lead Bear What Do You See?


Alright, I'm back! Did I miss anything?

The products, which were made in China for Target's in-house brand, were identified as the retailer's two "Message Bears" - one a pink stuffed bear with "XOXO" across the chest and the other a brown stuffed bear with "I Love U" across the chest, with "love" represented by a heart.


"...the laboratory identified lead levels nearly 10 times higher than those allowed under federal law.

Oh. whoops.
