Awhile back, there were reports of lead in baby bibs. But if you are like me, you heard the tail end of the report while making dinner, changing a diaper, or between loud toddler talk and a baby crying, you missed something!
The Issue: Last August, an environmental health group in California tested several vinyl bibs (and some with vinyl backing) for lead. Many came back positive, testing at three or four times the legal limit of lead in paint. The bibs were sold at Toys R Us and Walmart, which swiftly took the bibs off the shelves this last summer.

Disney's Winnie the Pooh bibs
Especially For Baby
