Dollar General refutes U.S. PIRG Education Fund report that high-lead toy set was sold in its stores

GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. — Dollar General before the Thanksgiving holiday refuted a recent U.S. PIRG Education Fund study — Trouble in Toyland 2013 — which suggested a toy jewelry ring set that tested twice the legal limit for lead was sold at Dollar General stores. 

"This product is not currently, nor has ever been, sold in Dollar General stores," the dollar store operator said. 

"Dollar General strives to provide quality products," the company continued. "Laboratories accredited by the Consumer Product Safety Commission test all products imported by Dollar General, and only those products that satisfy federal, state and company safety requirements are sold in Dollar General stores."
