Most consumer products imported into Australia are never tested for lead, so although some of the products recalled in the United States due to lead poisoning hazards may not be available in Australia, the list of US lead poisoning hazard consumer product recalls provides a useful guide to the sorts of products that MAY cause lead poisoning.
