The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 7,200 Stuffed Fun Balls sold through dollar stores because they contain lead paint.
There have been no reported problems, but lead paint can be toxic to young children who might eat it.
The balls are orange, about 10 centimetres in diameter and look like a basketball. They are printed with coloured numbers, letters and “Reg. #PA-10623(HK).”
For more information, call the maker, Regent Products, at 1-800-940-4869.
