Lead Paint in Thomas & Friends Wooden Trains Sparks Recall | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

A recall of the Thomas & Friends wooden train set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has once more thrust the safety of imported goods — particularly those from China — into the spotlight.  This latest recall of the Thomas & Friends set stems from the presence of lead in paint used to manufacture the toys.  If ingested, the paint can cause brain damage.   According to the recall notice, approximately 1.5 million units are affected by the recall.  Customers are advised to collect the toys immediately, and to contact the importer for a replacement toy.

The CPSC notice states: “For additional information, contact RC2 Corp. toll-free at (866) 725-4407 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Thursday  and between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. CT Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at”
