Following a meeting of representatives from CBS, Planet Toys, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), and Public Justice, the CSI Fingerprint Examination Kit was recalled due to concerns of asbestos contamination.
The meeting occurred to discuss discrepancies between the testing conducted by the ADAO and Planet Toys. In the end, they decided to pull all of the kits from shelves because of the chance that some had been contaminated. The ADAO found that the tested kits from lot AD100 did contain asbestos while the independent tests conducted by CBS and Planet Toy found that their samples were not contaminated. Preferring to be safe rather than sorry, the toy was pulled.
The CSI Fingerprint Examination kit was determined to have white powder in it that was contaminated with asbestos above 5%. This is well above the legal limit that is permitted under current government regulations.
