  QUESTION: Lead in lamps, 21 Jun 2006, Wisconsin USA

I am 6 weeks pregnant and I noticed on my bedroom lamp it has a warning sticker that states the lamp contains lead. Should I remove the lamp from my bedroom? Is it's presence alone harmful?
Thank you !
ANSWER: 06 Jul 2006

Dear Tricia,

Lead is usually present at the contact of the globe as well as in the PVC of the cord. Occasionally it is present as a surface coating but it is unlikely.

Therefore you can keep the lamp in your house. Lamps that contains lead becomes dangerous when there is a fire hazard. You may want to check It has some information on lead in light bulbs and lamps.

I hope this would help.
