CEH offers free testing of toys and other items for lead by appointment or mail-in. If you have items that you’re particularly concerned about, we can test them for you.
Send your item, or a piece of your item to CEH. (A piece as small as a dime is generally enough for our testing.) Please include your name and e-mail address so that we can let you know the results.
Our address is:
Center for Environmental Health
2201 Broadway, Suite 302
Oakland, CA 94612
The testing does not damage the item. If you would like the item returned, please include return packaging with pre-paid postage.
CEH does not charge for testing, but donations are welcome.
