CPSC Probing Lead In Hannah Montana Toys

Federal consumer safety watchdogs are investigating the lead content in popular Hannah Montana toys.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission move comes on the heels of a report by CBS News correspondent Sandra Hughes on Early Show Thursday that at least five, and as many as nine of the items may contain unsafe levels of lead.

The Hughes report was based on testing done by an independent California lab, the Center for Environmental Health.

Offcials of Disney, which owns the Montana character, deny their products have high concentrations of lead, saying their tests show the products fall well below government standards.
