CPSC: Zhu Zhu Toys Meet Safety Standards

The Consumer Product Safety Commission confirmed Monday that the popular Zhu Zhu toy is not out of compliance with the new U.S. mandatory toy standard.

The consumer group, "Good Guide" says they found the chemical antimony, in the fur and nose of the toy hamster, and their findings show the toy surpasses the federal standard for that chemical.

But Monday night the CPSC said the toys do not exceed the federal antimony limits. They are however, reviewing the issue and say parents should know about the new child safety law that went into effect this year.

The Saint Louis manufacturer of Zhu Zhus says the company is now retesting the toy in an independent lab. No recall has been issued.
