CSI: Fingerprint Examination Kit (CBS Consumer Products, 2007)

Based on the hit CBS show, CSI, this game allowed children to look for fingerprints using a special powder and brushes. The problem was the powder contained up to five percent of asbestos. This was discovered in November 2007, but the manufacturer, CBS Consumer Products, didn’t pull the plug right away as they wanted to cash in on Christmas sales. The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization decided to step in and filed a civil action lawsuit to stop sales of this kit.
