The Daily Lens – Poison control Warning Lead in Toys Kristina Hamm Spanish B roll

PRVIDEO.TV loves showing off our Spanish skills! This was a California Poison Control System press briefing in Los Angeles bringing experts and families together to measure a variety of common products available to children — toys, paint, candy and other items – for the presence of lead with a special lead detecting device, an XRF Analyzer Gun. This is especially important as Halloween is Sunday and imported candy, costumes and decorations can contain lead.

Poison Control System (www.calpoison.org) is observing National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week and wants to educate consumers about lead that can be found in a variety of children’s products, especially during Halloween. Lead poisoning is the most common environmental illness in California children and can cause lifelong learning and behavioral problems. Hispanic children are especially at risk.
