Discount retailer Target is recalling about 5,000 Anima Bamboo game sets because they contain lead paint, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The recall applies to the Anima Bamboo Collection games sold at Target stores in the U.S. from December 2006 through April 2007 for about $10 US.
Children absorb lead more easily than adults and are more vulnerable to poisoning. Exposure to high levels of lead can cause vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, coma or death. Symptoms include anemia, appetite loss, abdominal pain, constipation, fatigue, sleeplessness, irritability and headache.
No associated incidents or injuries have been reported to the company.
Consumers are asked to return the game to the store for a refund.
