Me and my mom knew this moths ago but we still don't buy them. They have not been at my store for moths. I do think you can still hold them.

That was the reason that they discontinued them, I think.
I don't think it is too big of a deal, just be careful until they are cleared up.

Personally, I don't see what the big deal is about stuff containing lead. I'm sure a lotof stuff in my house has lead in it (probably all of our Christmas decorations). Supposedly, lead is linked to lower IQ scores. But mine is pretty high and always has been. And I have only missed a few days of school (because I was sick) in my whole life (lead can make you sick). IDK. I just don't see what the big deal is. Unless it's a lot of lead. That could be a problem. But a charm is not very big.

The symptoms of lead poisoning may include:
  • Irritability
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Low appetite and energy
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Headaches
  • Reduced sensations
  • Loss of previous developmental skills (in young children)
  • Anemia
  • Constipation
  • Abdominal pain and cramping (usually the first sign of a high, toxic dose of lead poison)
  • Very high levels may cause vomiting, staggering gait, muscle weakness, seizures, or coma

There is not enough lead in 24 combined charms to create a lead poisoning issue unless you eat 24 of them at once and then the amount is still within the allowable standards. Ganz removed them because they did not want to cause this issue that we are talking about. They have made multiple releases regarding this and the charms are totally safe. Read my previous post again, please.

---------- Dixiecup added 2 Minutes and 18 Seconds later ----------

And like Lopily says, if it hinders IQ I have MORE than 24 charms and I have an IQ of 143...
There is a store near my place that still has charms, but because people have been told there is lead in them, no one wants to buy them. It was also left to the discretion of the Shop owners if they wished to pull them.
