The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 5,300 pairs of children's sunglasses because paint on the glasses may contain excessive levels of lead.
No injuries have been reported.
The two-tone sunglasses come in blue and Red with a spider web etched between the eyes and “Made in China” engraved on the right-hand side of the frame. They were imported by Axiom International Inc. of Billings, Mont.
The glasses were sold across the U.S. from May 2007 to August 2008 for between $1 US and $5 a pair.
Retailers will provide a full refund.
For more information, consumers can call Axiom at (800) 262-0599 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
