What about Lead?
Recently there have been many questions raised about the lead content in Christmas trees and lights strings. The wires included in our trees and in our light strands contain trace amounts of lead. Most household appliance cords contain the same small amount of lead that is used to insulate the wire. Our suppliers use the lowest lead content possible while maintaining all insulation safety standards required by law.
