Lead Paint Hazard Found In Four Children's Puzzles
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), U.S. Toy Company, Inc., Grandview, MO, is voluntarily recalling the following four puzzles: "Rooster," "Vegetable," "Animals" and "Garden Tools." CPSC testing of the puzzles in accordance with regulations under the Consumer Product Safety Act revealed levels of lead in the red paint of each puzzle that exceeds government standards, presenting a safety hazard to children. Even though CPSC and U.S. Toy Company know of no poisoning incidents, this recall of approximately 10,000 puzzles is being conducted to prevent the possiblity of poisoning.
