Health Canada recalls Day to Day Products brand wooden alphabet puzzles over high lead content

Health Canada is recalling wooden alphabet puzzles by Day to Day Products because the surface coating on the puzzle with upper case alphabet letters contains lead in excess of the allowable limit.

Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.

This recall involves two versions of a wooden puzzle with puzzle pieces in the shape of letters of the alphabet.

The pieces are either red, yellow, green or blue, and are arranged in alphabetical order. The product packaging indicates the toy is intended for children over the age of three.

The first product has all upper-case alphabet letters. This product can be identified by item #1759/VP931P and UPC 621228317598.

The second product has all lower-case alphabet letters. This product can be identified by item #4091/V931Q and UPC 621228310919.

The item and UPC numbers are on the back of the product packaging.
Approximately 1,440 units of the puzzles were sold across Canada between December 2006 to July 2009.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled puzzles away from children and dispose of the product in regular household garbage.

Consumers may contact the retail store where the product was purchased if they want a refund.
