A toy car manufacturer has announced a recall of their products due to excessive levels of lead paint, according to recent news sources.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and LM Import & Export, Inc, of Miami, FL, issued the recall of about 1,900 of their products. The toys were distributed by Mega Wholesales Corporation.
The hazard is the surface paint on the toys and the excessive amount of lead it contains, which is a violation of the lead paint standard set by the federal government. The cars come in packages of six or four and are silver, blue, or black with red stickers. The packaging has item numbers “43835” and “43836” printed on it.
The cars were sold at Mega Wholesale in Miami from September 2010 to January 2011, for about $2 or $3 for a set. Consumers should not allow children to play with these toys. They can be returned to the store of purchase for a refund.
