This piece was negative for: Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, & Arsenic.

People often express concern for products from the Dollar (type) stores [Dollar Tree, Dollar Store, Dollar General, 99cent Store] and usually I explain to them that BECAUSE these types of stores were cited for several significant Lead-violations years ago, in my experience the products they sell have become much safer in recent years (if only from a Lead perspective.)

Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts. [When you share my posts I earn $$ to help cover the costs the independent consumer goods testing I do!]

If you want to donate to help me do this kind of testing (where I buy stuff new at a store to test),  to “Chip-In” [via PayPal or with a credit card] Click HERE or you can contribute on GoFundME [LINK.] As an example, this Dollar Tree store trip cost me about $60 including the stuff and the transportation – not including the cost of testing and childcare.
