AAFES Expands Recall of "Soldier Bear" Toy Sets Due to Lead Poisoning Hazard
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), AAFES (Army & Air Force Exchange Service), of Dallas, Texas, is voluntarily recalling about 13,000 Soldier Bear Brand Toy Sets (about 3,000 Invincibles Transport Converter Toy Sets were recalled on May 23, 2007). Surface paints on the toy action figures, dinosaurs and animals contain high levels of lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.
