Shipment of lead contaminated baby clothes seized

LEWISTON, N.Y. (WIVB) — A dangerous shipment of baby clothes won’t hit U.S. stores thanks to officers at the Lewiston Bridge.

Customs and Border Protection officers Thursday seized a contaminated shipment of clothes manufactured in China. Officers shipped samples to their product testing and evaluation center and found they contained excessive and violative levels of lead on parts of the clothing.

Officers will destroy the shipment under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
