Asbestos Nation funded by EWG Action Fund conducted asbestos tests on 28 crayon boxes and 21 crime scene fingerprint kits finding four of the children's crayons and two of kids' fingerprint kits contained asbestos fibers. All were made in China.
EWG purchased the crayons that tested positive for asbestos at Party City and Dollar Tree, in California between February and May 2015:
(1) Amscan Crayons Contained Tremolite, Anthyophyllite
(2) Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Contained Chrysotile, Tremolite
(3) Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Crayons Contained Tremolite
(4) Saban's Power Rangers Super Megaforce Contained Tremolite
The two crime scene toys that contained asbestos were ordered through Amazon.com and ToysRUs.com.
CRIME LAB KITS
(1) EduScience Deluxe Forensics Lab Kit Contained Tremolite, Chrysotile, Actinolite, Anthophyllite
black fingerprint powder
(2) Inside Intelligence Secret Spy Kit Contained Tremolite
white fingerprint powder
Higher asbestos concentrations were in the two crime scene kits; loose powders in the kits pose a greater inhalation risk than fibers in the crayons. A single crayon or crime scene powder sample could contain
1 million or more microscopic asbestos fibers.
