Seriously? Wizard of Oz Glasses Are For Adults?


This is a decision I would have expected from the previous Administration, but not from the current one. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has reversed a decision it made last month. The original decision was for a recall of sets of Wizard of Oz drinking glasses because they contained up to 1000 times the federal maximum amount of lead in the paint on the glasses. Also included in that recall were glasses featuring Superman, Wonder Woman, and other cartoon characters. Of course the glasses were manufactured in China, but sold here.

After further study the CPSC has now determined that the glasses were not “primarily” intended for use by children. Really? How many of your adult friends drink from Wizard of Oz glasses? Well, actually, a couple of my friends might do that, but I bet those glasses are used by many more children than by adults. Ridiculous.
