Recalled: Easter egg toys
Fri, Mar 21, 2008 (BabyCenter News) Ã¢â‚¬â€ Hobby Lobby has announced a recall of about 13,000 camouflage eggs and spinning egg tops in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Paint on the toy eggs contains excessive levels of lead, which violates the federal lead paint standard. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause serious health effects.
The camouflage egg set includes eight eggs painted in white, brown, and green camouflage colors. Item #1031 is printed on the front of the packaging. The words “Made in China for Tony Development and Mfg Ltd; TST, Kin, HK” and UPC code 43078 01031 are printed on the back of the packaging.
The Easter spinning egg tops come in a package that includes a single egg and a rip cord. The eggs are multi-colored. Item #1054 is printed on the front of the packaging. The words “Made in China for Tony Development and Mfg Ltd. TST, Kin, HK” and UPC code 43078 01054 are printed on the back of the packaging.
The toy eggs were sold at Hobby Lobby stores nationwide from January 2008 through March 2008. The camouflage eggs sold for about $2.50 and the spinning tops for about $2. They were made in China.
