Products were made in China and imported to the US.
The tests were commissioned by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) action fund, a government-certified laboratory.
The tainted products were marketed under the names of the popular characters Mickey Mouse, Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The contaminated crayons were purchased from February to May 2015 from Party City and Dollar Tree.
The crime scene toys were purchased through Amazon.com and ToysRUs.com.
As contaminated crayons are used, they can release microscopic asbestos fibers. Breathing in microscopic asbestos fibers has been linked to serious health problems, including lung disease, lung cancer and mesothelioma. Package labels indicated that the crayons and toys containing asbestos were made in China and imported to the US.
BTW: The average child uses 730 crayons by age 10. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2015/07/08/asbestos-found-in-childrens-crayons-toys/
