Default Surebond glue gun? Im worried Help!

Sure bonder glue gun... Does anyone else use this gun? What do you do about the cord being filled with LEAD? I got one yesterday and was reading the instructions and found the lead warning Can I cover the cord and make it safer? I mean I wash my hands before and after I craft but what if I forget? I have a baby and this worried me :/

I googled 'surebond glue gun lead warning' and several things come up. They say that inside the cord is lead and you should wash your hands after use and to keep them away from children. You can buy nice glue guns all over the place without this warning.

That lead warning is on a lot of items probably in your house already. I know that my Christmas lights and many of my Halloween decorations have that warning on them too. I never noticed it on my glue gun cording though..have to check when I get home, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did since many cords do have it.

I just bought a mini AdTech that had the same warning! How can the manufacturers get away with that?

I need to check mine, but like another poster mentioned, dozens of your everyday household items will have some degree of lead content, the difference is where it came from, when it was manufactured and what the laws are about posting this on a warning label. If you are concerned about it, if you bought it somewhere like Michaels, HL, or Walmart, I'm sure they would be more than willing to let you return it if it was purchased recently (and with a receipt) after you explain your concerns.

After doing our Christmas tree, I always wash my hands and I try not to touch my face or anything! I hate touching the lights because of the warning.

Interesting!! Thanks for the warning - I have NEVER considered the lead in cords, and I rarely read those tags
