Asbestos Found In Numerous Consumer Products

According to the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, asbestos has been found in numerous consumer products, including one of this season’s top toys for Christmas.

The CSI Fingerprint Examination Kit, two brands of children’s clay, powdered cleanser, roof sealers, duct tapes, window glazings, spackling paste, and small home appliances were all found to include asbestos according to two of the three labs hired by the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, a watchgroup formed in 2004 to educate the public on the dangers of asbestos and the risks associated.

The riskiest of the products found is the CSI Fingerprint Examination Kit. The kit, licensed by CBS and produced in China, is a top seller. It comes with three “finger print dusting powders” that come in black, white, and glow-in-the-dark varieties. The white and glow-in-the-dark powders had high concentrations of asbestos fibers. Physicians are particularly concerned because they expect that a lot of dust from the powder will be inhaled by children as they run around dusting for fingerprints and moving the powder around with a small brush.

Some of the products on the list had less than 1% asbestos in them which would make them legal under the bill just passed by the U.S. Senate. Others, such as the CSI kit, have much higher asbestos contents. Physicians insist that asbestos exposure in any quantity is harmful to the body. 

If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos or diagnosed with mesothelioma, there may be legal options available to you. Contact the Mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Kherkher at 1-866-950-9000 to discuss your legal options and to set up a free initial consultation.
