CPSC Arizona Office was contacted by Arizona Dept. of Health ([REDACTED], MPH, Office of Environmental Health) about a lead incident involving a 1 year old boy (name/address confidential) and the lead/gold alloy door on a wood burning stove (Lopi stove model # 380/440, ser. # WH018555) which was installed in a home in the Flagstaff, AZ area around 1983 -85). The 1 year old boy received routine testing in July 2011 & had high levels of lead (17 micrograms per deciliter). Local officials examined the home, checked for leaded products & found the double door, cast iron wood burning stove in the living area. The child played around this stove in the summer & pulled himself up using the stove. Flakes were coming off stove door. A lead check swap suggested it contained lead. Doors were removed & tested at the Arizona Dept. of Health State lab in Nov. 2011. This testing showed lead in the door plate (6600 mg/kg). The family removed the stove from their home. Child's lead level decreased to 10 - 12 micrograms per deciliter. Local/State officials feel the stove's door was the cause of the child's high lead level
