Toy importer G.A. Gertmenian and Sons is recalling a Pixar Toy Story 3 Bowling Game licensed by Disney due to violation of the lead paint standard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Gertmenian and Sons, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
About 600 of the Toy Story 3 Bowling Game were sold. The hazard is the red paint used on some bowling pins. The lead levels were measured in excess of the maximum allowable level. The toy was sold at Walmart Stores in the U.S. between September 1, 2010 and September 25, 2010 for about $18. Go check the toy shelfs in your house. If you have one you should stop using the bowling pins immediately and contact the G.A. Gertmenian and Sons for a free replacement set.
This recall affects Toy Story 3 Bowling Game Rugs with a batch marking of JA 148. The recalled item contains six white plastic bowling pins with two red stripes painted on the necks, one black plastic ball, and a 68 inch x 26 inch nylon game rug with a print of the character Buzz Lightyear on the front. The batch marking JA 148 appears on the bottom front of the packaging just above the bar code, and is also located on the tag attached to the rug.
