Thomas Train Recall

My BIL, Bobby, sent me a note this morning informing that Thomas the Train had been recalled. Sure enough there is lead in some of the paint...

Here is the LINK to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Name of Products: Various Thomas & Friends™ Wooden Railway Toys

Units: About 1.5 million

Importer/Distributor: RC2 Corp., of Oak Brook, Ill.

Hazard: Surface paints on the recalled products contain lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.

It lists exactly which ones are in question. Also, if you want a more dramatic story... go HERE to abc News on it.
