What about Legos, do they have lead in them?

There was a TV program I watched showing a guy doing lead tests on several toys. And true enough almost all of the toys tested had lead! Obviously, Mega Blocks had lead in them, so we disposed ours immediately. My kids loved them, I was wondering if anyone has information about Legos whether they are free from lead or not? Are they manufactured in China?

Lego is a company in Denmark and definitely not manufactured in China. We ensure that all LEGO products meet the expectations of quality and safety of the consumers. The LEGO Group ensures that its products not only meet the standards for plastics used in making toys but also the regulations that govern food packaging including specific requirements for the properties of the raw materials. It uses primarily ABS plastics in the manufacture of its products which has been specially developed for the company for exclusive use. All LEGO play materials carry the EU CE symbol which guarantees that the product complies with the European Toy Directive. Products manufactured for the American market must satisfy the Code of Federal Regulation and ASTM standard F963. The LEGO Group is a member of both TIE (Toy Industries of Europe) and TIA (Toy Industries of America), and chairs the European committee for standardization of toy safety. The LEGO Group strictly complies with toy standards promoting safety in the toy sector.
