About 11,400 Soldier Bear Toys have been recalled because they contain high levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The recall applies to the following toys:
- Wooden Pull-Along Learning Blocks Wagon, style 6320, UPC 834162002158.
- Time Teacher, style 6231, UPC 834162002646.
- Wooden Riding Horse, style 6349, UPC 834162003698.
- Vehicle Playset, style 1007, UPC 4895130810072.
The toys were sold in Army & Air Force Exchange stores worldwide from August 2006 through October 2007 for between $5 and $20 US. The toys were manufactured in China.
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 adverse health conditions have been reported.
Consumers should take the toy away from children and return them for a full refund.
