Orange County (Orlando), Florida To Test Toys for Lead

The Orange County Health Department – Office of Environmental Services is offering a toy inspection program to evaluate toys for lead content. Child exposure to even small amounts of metal / lead can affect a child’s brain development and health. There will be some costs associated with the inspection. It will be interesting to see the turn out for the program and inspections. I think this is a valuable program that can help reduce health problems and child injuries related to unsafe toys.
