Zebco Brands of Tulsa, Okla., has recalled about 1,737 bright orange spinning fishing reels because the paint on the reel contains lead beyond the allowable limit, Health Canada says.
The reels were sold with rods in department and sporting goods stores in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta from August 2007 to December 2008.
There are no reports of injuries.
They are marked Zebco and ZAVS 10 on the reel handle. The spool is marked Zebco AVS v 1.0. The rods have the product code ZAV1SP54C, 06, NS3 UPC 032784583110 Orange Spinning Combo.
The recall does not apply to spincast (or closed-face) reels or the rods.
Consumers should stop using the reels and contact Zebco at 1-800-444-5581 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday for a refund.
