Patio Umbrellas pose lead hazard

Atico International USA is recalling its 9-foot patio umbrellas sold at Longs Drug Stores across the U.S.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advised that the paint on the umbrella poles contain excessive levels of lead.

Consumers should stop using the umbrellas immediately and return the product to the retailers for a full refund.

No incidents of injury have been reported. About 27,700 umbrellas were sold in April and May 2006.
