Birmingham City Council Trading Standards Officers have seized rolling pins and other cooking utensils in Small Heath which after analysis have been found to contain 14% lead.
Vir Ahluwalia from Birmingham Trading Standards said: “Lead can cause severe and sometimes permanent damage to the central nervous system so anyone who has one of these items should not use it under any circumstances. It would be helpful if they could also contact the National Consumer Helpline with information about when and where they have bought them.”
