Dollar Stores Recall 300,000 Toys
Paint Violates Lead Standards

UPDATED: 5:45 pm EST December 13, 2007

Dollar Tree announced Thursday the recall of about 300,000 toys.

(A previous version of this story incorrectly listed Dollar General as an affected retailer.)

They include bead and wire toys for babies and Speed Race Pull Back and Go Action cars.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said that the toys, which were made in China, have high levels of lead that violate federal paint standards. There were no reports of injuries.

One group of toys has colored beads that slide on wires attached to a natural wood platform. They have item number 903419 and date code 71 printed on the back of the packaging.

The toy cars are yellow with black stripes and white with red stripes. Item number 873820 and date code 77 are printed on the back of the packaging.

They were sold at Dollar Tree, Dollar Bill$, Dollar Express, Greenbacks, Only One $1 and Deal$ stores nationwide from March 2007 through October 2007 for $1.

People should take the toys from children and return them to the store for a refund.
