About 1.6 million Cub Scouts Totem Badges sold through Boy Scouts of America outlets are being recalled because they contain high lead levels, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.
The badges measure 4.5 inches x 3 inches and are marked with the words "PROGRESS TOWARD RANKS."
No injuries have been reported.
The badges were sold from January 2000 through September 2007.
Parents should remove badges from clothing and contact the distributor Kahoot Products Inc. for a replacement badge.
