Target removes two models of fidget spinners from its website.  The company also starting to pull the spinner off store shelves.
 

Company officials say tests have shown the fidget spinners contain high levels of lead. The retailer says they are categorized as "general use" products and not as children's toys, meaning they are not subject to the lead limits set for products used by children. Despite this, the devices are very popular with young people.

Some of the spinners were found to have up to 300-times the amount of lead allowed in toys.
