Folks,

Just a heads up to beware of asbestos containing fire wallets being sold. These have been found on the big auction site, but also being sold at fairs and carnivals. I'd hate anyone to be exposed to the health risks associated with Asbestos and Asbestos Containing Materials.

Please let us try to make the wider magical community aware of this risk.

Regards,

Brynmore

This can be a concern for the minority of people using wallets with asbestos. I have a fire wallet from Theatre Magic and it does not contain asbestos.

I work in a health and safety consultancy, and many products coming out of China that are certified asbestos free are currently being found to contain asbestos. Not just fire wallets, but trains and cars. So if it designed to be fire retardent and comes from China, I would suggest proceeding with caution.

Ray, I'm glad your wallet is asbestos free, but if this post stops even one person from being exposed to ACM then I believe it is worth sharing.
