  • A new investigation by a consumer watch dog group is reporting that many handbags being sold are tainted with lead.

    After testing 300 bags, the consumer group reports it found 43 bags with lead in it's lining.

    The five purses that contained the most lead were made by Tory Burch, Guess, House of Harlow, Nine West and Charlotte Russe.

    Out of the purses tested, the Tory Burch purse had 200 times more lead than the approved level decided by the Center for Environmental Health.

    The consumer group warns that purses with bright colors and plastic portions are more likely to have lead.

    From the top five companies listed, only Burch and Nine West responded, agreeing that they would each do investigations and pull the contaminated bags.
