Mateel Environmental Justice Foundation Takes on Disney

via LA TIMES:

“Dozens of leaded-glass windows and brass rail chains, door knobs and drinking water fountains at some of Disneyland’s most popular attractions expose children to high levels of lead, according to an environmental group seeking a court injunction Tuesday to require the amusement park to cover the items or post health warnings.”

“A wipe sample taken from a stained-glass Pinocchio window in the dining area of Village Haus restaurant found a lead exposure of 350 micrograms, Mateel said.

Under state law, warnings are required if exposure for average users exceeds 0.5 micrograms per day.”
