Watch out for lead

I bought a bird feeder about a month or so ago, and when I installed it I found out it has lead in the parts. The instructions said to wash hands after assembly, as it contained lead. These were made in China.

I informed the store where I bought it, but I noticed a week later the feeders were still on the shelf. I’m sure there are other stores that have these same bird feeders.

You wouldn’t know they contained lead unless you opened them up and read the instructions.
