I bought a hand truck for moving boxes and it was delivered yesterday. When I opened the box the smell was shocking! It is painted red, and was lartially wrapped in Saran wrap, and covered fully in plastic. All of the plastic had an orange/yellow tint to it where it was close to the item.
I live in an apartment so there’s no place to store it outside.
What’s the deal? Is this lead paint? How dangerous is it? Should I return it?
