Products At Target Contain High Lead Levels

Last updated on Tuesday, June 30, 2009

(UNDATED) - Indiana State Health Officials warn Hoosiers that elevated lead levels have been found in products sold at Target stores.

The product causing concern is Wink Bath and Body's shimmer lip gloss in the following flavors: mango colada, frosted pineapple and strawberry sangria.

As of June 25, Target has removed all of the products from their shelves.

Health officials warn that elevated levels of lead in blood are especially dangerous for children younger than six years of age, whose developing brains are particularly vulnerable.

In addition to injury to the brain and the nervous system, lead can negatively affect learning and behavior.
