Recalls: toys, tumblers, water bottles, and much more
October 5, 2007
Dozens of items have just been recalled due to lead paint that was applied while these toys and items were in China.
Let’s see …
- Alpine Design Aluminum Water Bottles sold at Sports Authority
- Various bookmarks and journals (some kiddie-themed, some adult-themed) by Antioch Publishing sold at bookstores, gift shops, and card shops nationwide
- Metal keychains (including “Hope” “Dream” “Love”) sold at Dollar General stores
- Baby Einstein’s blue baby blocks sold nationwide
- Children’s toy decoration sets sold at Toys R Us
- Green Frankenstein tumbler cups sold at Dollar General
- Pirates of the Carribean toy squeeze flashlights sold nationwide by Eveready Battery Co.
- Wooden painted alphabet block toys (including building blocks, flip-flop blocks) sold at KB Toys
Reason why we’re starting to see more and more recalls? The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a Federal agency responsible for the safety of various toys, products, and other items sold in the USA, seems to finally be getting its act together and has begun testing various toys and products for lead paint.
