You would think that companies would ensure that the paint being used for their product is safe first before use, not after the fact!

Will they be re-doing these glasses so they are safe? I really think they are cute and just the right size.

They probably found 1 ppb in one glass. How did those of us 40+ people ever live to be our age? We grew up in houses with lead paint, furniture with lead paint, cribs etc. IF we were put in a car seat, it was a metal tube covered with 1/4" of foam. Remember riding a bike and never hearing of a helmet?

What happened to testing these types of products before they hit the marketplace. They also had a series of these glasses a few years ago which I purchased and I am sure alot of other people did too. Are they safe? What changed?
