Hannah Montana is inescapable at toy stores, with hundreds of products aimed at tween girls. But are they safe? According to CBS:

Like so many vinyl products made in China, some of these have been discovered to contain lead, according to Charles Margulis of the independent California lab, the Center for Environmental Health. "We purchased 28 Hannah Montana products," he told Hughes, "and of those 28, nine had high levels of lead."
