Beware Silicone Wristbands!

Lance Armstrong started it with his “Livestrong” silicone wristbands to raise money for cancer research. Millions have been sold since as fund raisers.
Beware, there is only one supplier in America who makes them here and he informed me that the Chinese add lead to theirs to make the colors brighter. As has been well documented, lead is harmful especially to infants and children and can cause brain damage.  The suppliers are supposed to be checked but companies bribe the officials who tell them when the inspectors are coming.  
I have the source for American made and I for one am not going to take the chance a child can get one of the wristbands I sell.
PS, the multicolor ones? I am told children are paid to mix the toxic chemicals to produce those pretty colors.  You have been warned!
