Nebraska-based Netshops is recalling about 50 children's table and chair sets because surface paint used on the furniture contains high levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.
The recall affects models ALZ024-3 or ALZ023-3 sold through netshops.com from November 2007 through December 2007 for between $100 and $130 US.
High amounts of lead can harm the nervous system, kidneys and other major organs. Anemia, a decline in red blood cells, can occur, as can damage to the nervous system that may impair mental function. At worst, lead poisoning can cause seizures or death.
No adverse health effects have been reported.
The furniture was manufactured in China.
Consumers should stop using the chairs and contact the company for a full refund.
