Fisher-Price recalls 967,000 toys
August 01, 2007
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with importer Fisher-Price Inc. of East Aurora, NY has announced a voluntary recall of about 967,000 Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer and other children's toys due to the possibility of excessive levels of lead in the toys' surface paint. Consumers should stop using the recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The recalled products were manufactured in China.

The recall involves various figures and toys that were manufactured between April 19, 2007 and July 6, 2007 and were sold alone or as part of sets nationwide from May 2007 until the present. The recalled toys, which are all marked with “Fisher-Price,” may have a date code between 109-7LF and 187-7LF marked on the product or packaging.

Fisher-Price is asking that consumers return the product in order to receive a voucher for a replacement toy of the consumer’s choice (up to the value of the returned product). While no injuries have been reported, some disgruntled parents think that it might take a class action suit to better redress this issue.
