Nine West bag bye-bye!!
Popular Purses May Carry Dangerous Levels Of Lead
Good grief! “The Center for Environmental Health, the same watchdog group that exposes lead in toys and baby products, tested dozens of vinyl and faux-leather purses and wallets from major retailers [including Macy’s, Kohl’s, JCPenney, WalMart, and Target.] Some of the brands include Nine West, Rossetti, and Target’s Xhilaration.” Lead was found on/in MANY of the products. This is bad.
I’m going to get rid of a newish Nine West bag that I know is vinyl/faux. It was too little to carry all my junk anyhow, but still.
You can pick up a lead testing kit at many discount or department stores. I’m going to do that, because I got my mom a lot of costume jewelry for Christmas, and I suspect I need to test that stuff. Also gave some of it to friends, so I’ll be calling them. In fact, the other night I got a USA pin from WalMart that’s probably also a no-no, because the warning on the back said not to let children under ten handle the pin. *facepalm* Ai-yi-yi.
McDonald’s is recalling their souvenir “Shrek” glasses because the paint contains cadmium, which is carcinogenic. Eeeep!
You can’t trust the food supply, either. I just had to throw out a Fresh Express salad that had a “G” or something like that in the code because of a recall. We already are suspicious of ground beef and spinach.
This is enough to make you seriously paranoid. We are going to need tinfoil hats, ASAP. Maybe I could start an Etsy shop and sell them.
I need the cash, because the car had to have a brake job this morning to the tune of over $300 *ouch*. It also had an oil change and lube job. (As dirty as it sounds.) Then I had to fill the gas tank, which cost $50 (it holds 24 gallons and I put in 20). Before THAT, I had to get those $85 steel shelves for the garage to replace the wooden ones that collapsed. (At last, I see the desire to call them “Steal” shelves like on all those mistaken signs, and follow the instructions on the sign.)
