Children's storage bins recalled due to lead paint

Lowe's retail stores are recalling wooden children's storage bins because they violate U.S. lead paint standards.

About 84,000 units were sold in the United States from March 2007 through February 2008 for about $6 US. It's not clear how many may have been sold in Canada.

The bins have scalloped edges and were sold in pastel green or pink. Item number 226782 (pastel green storage bin) or 226781 (pink storage bin) is located on the bottom of the storage bin. No other storage bins or colors are included in this recall. The bins were made in Taiwan.

Consumers should take the recalled storage bins away from children and return them to any Lowe’s store for a full refund.
