La Salle Metal-Wrapped Coffee Table
Restoration Hardware
The table was advertised by Restoration Hardware and subsequently purchased and used by us as a coffee table. As such, it was used to hold drinks, etc. What prompted this report was that my infant daughter was tested for lead exposure when she turned 1 as is required in my State. Her levels were elevated beyond the normal range to the near dangerous level and we were alerted by the State. In the following month, we began searching around the house for possible lead contamination. We could not find any potential lead sources until last week when we attempted to clean a white film off our coffee table (seemingly everywhere our daughter touches when she walks around the table). The film wouldn't clean off, so we searched online for how to clean it and immediately discovered that several other nearly identical tables sold by the same company were recently recalled for causing lead contamination in children when the finish would come off and leave a white residue. This sounded identical to our problem, so we obtained an at home lead test from Lowe's and it indicated a positive result. Today we had a professional environmental company come to our house and test the table. They also found that the table does contain lead. No other lead sources were found in our living area.

I actually contacted Restoration Hardware who is the retailer. I'm not sure who the manufacturer is.
