Wooden and bone rattle lead (Pb) hazard
Rattles made of wood and bone and sold by the Oneida Museum have been found to contain lead shot. Lead is a well-known hazard that was banned in 1978 from paint, products marketed to children, and in dishes or cookware (CDC).
Product: Wood and bone rattles
Sold by: Oneida Nation Museum
Hazard: “Rattle” is produced by loose lead shot in the bone section.
Incidents/Injuries: Report of fine black dust from lead shot, leaking from the bone rattle section onto the wooden handle
Remedy: In the short term, immediately take the rattles away from children and place in a ziplock bag. Store the bag in safe place until further recall notice.
