Hockey Is More Dangerous Than You Thought

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a voluntary recall of several models of hockey sticks because they have paint with lead levels in excess of the federal standard. Apparently, as Gilbert Ross of the American Council on Science and Health notes, the CPSC is worried that when players aren’t using their sticks to smack opposing players in the ribs or trip them, they’ll chew on the sticks and ingest the lead from the paint. Thanks for looking out for us CPSC!
