US Customs Seizes Pirate Costumes In Seattle

SEATTLE (AP) — More than 1,300 Halloween costumes made in China were recently seized because of high levels of lead detected in the buttons.

Customs and Border Protection says two shipments headed for a distributor in the Seattle area were tested and found to have 11 times the acceptable level of lead.

The agency says the pirate costumes valued at more than $10,000 will be destroyed.
