CSI toy pulled from shelves for asbestos link
Given the nature of this website, I figured quite a few people may have purchased one of these:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Four days before Christmas, Planet Toys Inc. wants stores to remove the company's CSI Fingerprint Examination Kit from their shelves after some tests had revealed samples of asbestos included in the kits.
The New York toy manufacturer sent a "stop sale" notice Friday, according to a statement on the company's website saying an investigation is underway into whether the kits pose a health threat to anyone using them.
The announcement comes about three weeks after the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit advocacy group, called on stores to remove the toys from their shelves. Lab studies from an asbestos awareness organization showed asbestos in some samples of the kit's fingerprint dust.
A spokesman with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which regulates product safety, said the federal agency is investigating the claims but could not say whether an official recall would be issued for the toy.
"CPSC is aware that certain retailers have begun pulling this product off store shelves and CPSC is investigating whether there is asbestos within the product that can harm children," spokesman Scott Wolfson said.

10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.
