- Garden hoses (this is why children should not drink from them)
- Ceramic glazes (The US blocks the importation of lead tainted ceramic dishes)
- Lead Glass, including crystal dinnerware and swarovski crystals
- Plumbing (pipes and solder)
- Some candles
- Roofing materials
- Car batteries
- Vinyl baby bibs
For years, Big Box retailers have required factories to submit any metal or painted metal products for lead testing. They may expand this to include plastic findings. So many trim details come from China, it is impossible to know if they are lead free unless they are tested. Later I will post some sources for testing labs.
The health effects of ingesting lead, especially by small children is well documented. Lead can affect adults too, especially reproductive, cardiovascular, and mental health.
Maybe I am over reacting but I trashed a whole bunch of crystal glasses (24% lead) the other day.
