Italian police seize 400 tainted plastic swords in Genoa

Rome, December 19 - Italian inspection police seized 400 tainted plastic swords in the Genoa port on Wednesday. Authorities found through laboratory testing that the Chinese-made toys had levels of chrome that far exceeded the legal limit. Chrome can cause skin rashes, respiratory or intestinal problems, weakening of the immune system and cancer. Charges have been filed against the Pavia-based toy importer, who has also been sanctioned in the past for bringing in counterfeit goods. Italian authorities have issued a Europe-wide alert on shipments of similar products.
