About 1,200 children's furniture sets sold through HomeSense are being recalled in Canada for unsafe lead levels, Health Canada said Monday.
The recall applies to the following products:
- Blooming Garden storage step stool, Vendor Style #MJ510BG.
- Blooming Garden table, Vendor Style #MJ275BG.
- Blooming Garden chair, Vendor Style #MJ250BG.
- A Pirate's Life step stool, Vendor Style #CC510PR.

- A Pirate's Life two-step Stool, Vendor Style #CC500PR.
- A Pirate's Life bookend, Vendor Style #CC300PR.
- A Pirate's Life shelf with pegs, Vendor Style #CC350PR.
- A Pirate's Life table with storage, Vendor Style #CC275PR.
- A Pirate's Life chairs, Vendor Style #CC275PR.
- A Pirate's Life coatrack, Vendor Style #CC435PR.
- Princess in Training step stool, Vendor Style #AL500PT.
- Princess in Training table, Vendor Style #AL275PT.

High amounts of lead can harm the nervous system, kidneys and other major organs. Anemia, a decline in red blood cells, can occur, as well as damage to the nervous system that may impair mental function. Lead poisoning can also cause seizures or death.
The furniture sets, which were manufactured in China, were sold from August 2007 through October 2007.
Health Canada said testing on only one of the furniture lines showed excessive lead, but the New Jersey-based manufacturer, LC Creations, and HomeSense opted to pull all three lines as a precaution.
Consumers should take the toys away from children and return the products for a full refund.
