Minnesota-based DecoPac Inc. is withdrawing about 80,000 football bobble head cake decorations because they contain high lead levels, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The recall applies to miniature bobble heads for the following teams:
- Baltimore Ravens.
- Green Bay Packers.
- Oakland Raiders.
- Chicago Bears.
- Indianapolis Colts.
- Philadelphia Eagles.
- Cincinnati Bengals.
- New England Patriots.
- Pittsburgh Steelers.
- Dallas Cowboys.
- New Orleans Saints.
- San Francisco 49ers.
- Denver Broncos.
- New York Giants.
- St. Louis Rams.
The bobble heads were sold in bakeries and ice cream stores in the U.S. from January 2006 through October 2007.
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. At worst, lead poisoning can cause seizures or death.
No associated health problems have been reported.
Consumers with the affected product should contact the company.
