Hybrivet Systems Inc. sent employees out to local retailers to check for children’s toys and products with dangerous levels of lead in them using the company's LeadCheck screening swabs.

The company says lead was found on plates, jewelry, and other items at major local retailers. Exactly what major retailers were checked and what the local region was is unclear. "While the government and manufacturers say they are doing all they can to prevent toys and other products with high levels of lead from reaching retail shelves, consumers must be diligent in becoming informed for themselves and educated about the extent of the problem," said Dr. Marcia J. Stone, president and chief executive officer of Hybrivet.

One item that tested positive for lead was a cereal dish priced at $3.49 that would hold a child’s breakfast. National attention has been focused on lead contamination in recent months due to the huge amount of recalled children’s toys due to lead contamination.
