Toy xylophones pulled for high lead levels

About 144 toy xylophones are being withdrawn from the marketplace because surface paint on the toys contains high levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.

The recall affects toys, imported by King Import Warehouse, with the item number KW20119. The xylophones were sold through discount stores in Texas from December 2007 through February 2008 for about $1.

The toys were made in China.

No adverse health effects have been reported.

Consumers should return the toys for a replacement.
