(KSL News) Parents concerned about giving their children toys with high lead contents can have the gifts checked before they put them under tree.
Today the Davis County Health Department is offering free lead testing until 3 p.m.
It will be at the Davis County Events Center's Building #2. The Events Center (originally known as the Davis County Fairpark) is located west of I-15 at 151 S. 1100 West in Farmington.
According to Lewis Garrett, the director of the Davis County Health Department, "Trained environmental health scientists from our health department will use hand-held X-ray fluorescence ‘guns' to detect lead in any items brought in for testing. Also, they'll answer questions about the testing results and provide information on lead poisoning prevention."
There is a limit of three items per household.
