Toy cookie sets recalled over barium levels

Toy cookie baking sets by Melissa & Doug have been recalled because paint contains barium that exceeds allowable limits, said Health Canada.

About 26,290 units of the recalled products were sold across Canada between November 2008 and November 2009.

Some forms of barium are safely used in medical and commercial applications, while other forms of barium can be toxic, causing adverse health effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and cramps as well as more severe symptoms. Children's toys coated with paint containing barium in excess of the allowable limit are strictly prohibited in Canada.

Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or illnesses related to the use of this product.
