On Friday, however, Target changed course. She tests consumer products that concerned parents send to her, including hundreds of fidget spinners.
Fidget spinners are categorized as "general use" products rather than children's toys, so they are not subject to the lead limits normally applied to children's toys and overseen by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
A Target spokesperson responded to the story by writing in an email to PIRG that the fidget spinners in question are marketed to anyone age 14 or older. "So, Target needs to immediately stop selling the toys that contain high amounts of lead, and issue a recall for those that they've already sold".
Cook-Schulz said that the consumer group was pleased to learn that the fidget spinners will no longer be sold by Target.
"Target is committed to providing high quality and safe products to our guests, and we closely review all product safety claims that are brought to our attention".
USA Today said the company could not provide an estimate on how numerous popular fidget spinner toys it will have to remove from stores.

Notably, US PIRG continues to test spinners sold at other stores around the country. "We can't sit idly by while children play with these toxic toys".
