As if we haven’t heard it enough over the past year, products coming out of China have been found to be potentially dangerous to our health. Magicians & poker players be aware of what cards you’re using. According to TrendNews, The Consumer’s Foundation have shown that nearly half of playing cards sampled contained high levels of formaldehyde and most of the offending cards were made in China. One of the China-made playing cards, Motor Brand, had the highest levels of formaldehyde in the tests
“Tests of 55 playing card samples showed that 26 contained formaldehyde residue ranging from 122.7 parts per million (ppm) to 1,691 ppm, much higher than the limit of 75 ppm set by Taiwan, The Taipei Times quoted the Consumers’ Foundation as saying.”
Of course we recommend you buy American and stay with Ellusionist playing cards from the United States Playing Card Company. Using anything else can be hazardous to your health!
