Surprised they let them be sold in kids' fishing kits.

I'm sure some bureaucrat will "fix" that some day, too.  :-\

Don't let your kids eat them.  Stay away from the hooks as well.

Either use your brain or fish with your hands.

HMMMM  I have bit many lead sinkers.........eaten a few 7-1/2 bird shot. After thinking about all the people i know that have done the same, I deduce that the first symptom of "lead poisoning" is a very conservative point of view with a predisposition to self reliance.
