Lead in Pet Toys
An Aw/F member found this article about lead in pet toys. She says:
I have been checking toys at stores here in a Japan and almost all are made in China. There is a Mr. Pet brand which seems to be affiliated with the US brands Kong and Nylabone. Both of those are made in the US. I also found one latex squeaky toy made in Spain and another made in Malaysia. All others are from China. I am referring to dog toys here because I don’t have any cats. I would love to know how we could have toys here tested for lead and other deadly chemicals.
Do any of our readers know how we can test pet toys for lead in Japan (or anywhere else)?
