The bracelets should be discarded, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said. About 300,000 of the 8-inch-long (20 centimeters) metal bracelets, which have a heart-shaped charm with Reebok engraved on one side, were given away with some children's footwear purchased between May 2004 and March 2006, the safety commission said today in a statement. The bracelets have high lead levels and may harm young children. Reebok, which was bought by Adidas-Salomon AG earlier this year, received a report that a Minneapolis child died from lead poisoning after swallowing a piece of one of the Chinese- made bracelets. 31 March 2008 Jery Stedinger Lecture 27 6 23 March 2006 31 March 2008 Jery Stedinger Lecture 27 7 Lead & your kids 31 March 2008 Jery Stedinger Lecture 27 8 EPAs big 6 31 March 2008 Jery Stedinger Lecture 27 9 Environmental Risk Analysis Examples Risk Assessment of former Pesticide production Facility Illustration of Issues and analysis Organization of a real study Many many chemicals Use pathway analysis rather than box models Health Risk Assessment for NYS Waste-to-Energy Conversion Facilities Pathways Exposure assumptions: Conversion of air to soil, plant, animal concentrations Risk Calculations Non-Carcinogenic Chronic Risks Carcinogenic Chronic Risks 31 March 2008 Jery Stedinger Lecture 27 10 What class should be learning Environmental risk analysis literacy What people do What they try to analyze How people do it What models they use.
