By way of PetConnection.com and Consumeraffairs.com,

Two Chinese-made toys for pets sold at Wal-Mart stores contain elevated levels of lead, chromium, and cadmium, according to a forensic toxicologist whose lab tested the products for ConsumerAffairs.com.

Two veterinarians, however, said the levels of toxic metals found in the toys do not pose a health risk to dogs or cats. Whether the toys are a hazard to children and adults who handle them isn't clear.[/b]

I've started routinely checking everything I buy for my dogs and cats to see where it was made or where the food in it is from, as near as I can tell. Obviously, I won't buy anything made in China, but I'm starting to worry about food from other countries, too. There was a great buy on Bullie sticks at Costco yesterday, but I let it go, since the label said made in Brazil. I'm going to the local Pet Express later in hopes theirs come from the US. Now I'm wondering if I can even count on that.
