Considered one of the leading chip brands in the world and used in the most popular casinos in Las Vegas, Paulsons certainly have a reputation. The chips have been made from 13 secret materials, guarded in a similar way to Italian housewife’s guard the recipe for the Spaghetti Bolognese. The chips were recently tested by the leading health scientists in Arizona, with some startling findings.
Will Humble, who is the former head of the state's lead poisoning prevention program, said, 'If you were to take chips like these and spread them out, 1000 of them on the ground, essentially it would be a federal Superfund site. That's how much lead are in these things. I've been doing this for many, many years and seldom do we run across products that contain this much lead that are in people's homes.'
Whilst no amount of lead is considered safe, the legal limit in paint is 0.06%. After over 200 tests on the surface of Paulson chips, they all tested positive. Over half of them had more than the 10% lead limit the test could detect.
The potential health risks are especially serious to casino employees, pregnant women or women who might become pregnant. The company responsible for the manufacture of the chips has not commented thus far, but a recall of the chips in question would not seem unlikely.
