Like we don't have enough shit to worry about, now we have to worry about lead in vinyl lunchboxes?

Center for Environmental Health: Lead in Children's Lunch Boxes details some lawsuits being filed in California against Toys “R” Us, Warner Brothers, DC Comics, Time Warner, Walgreens, and others involve many lunch boxes featuring beloved children’s characters including Superman, Tweety Bird, Powerpuff Girls, and Hamtaro. Because some moron thought it was a good idea to make these products obviously designed for use by children to contain more than 90 times the legal limit for lead in children's products.

I'm sorry but WHAT THE FUCK? What could the idiot designers have been thinking or smoking?

I don't get it. I don't get how wickedly high levels of lead, well known to be seriously detrimental to children who ingest it, got into a children's product. Someone screwed up so badly that they should go to prison. Via.
