Toy Jewelry Recall

Several children's jewelry items made in China were also recalled today due to lead. Those recalls included:

  • About 23,500 TOBY & ME jewelry sets from TOBY N.Y.C. of New York. The recall includes various jewelry sets sold in a pink gift box with "TOBY & ME" printed on the front and "TOBY & ME tags attached to the packaging. The products were sold at T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, A.J. Wright, Cracker Barrel, and Shopko stores nationwide from August 2006 through August 2007 for between $8 and $15. For more information, call TOBY N.Y.C. at 866-235-0588 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time Monday through Friday or email the firm at info@tobynyc.com.
  • About 850 Children's Spinning Wheel-Metal Necklaces from Rhode Island Novelty of Cumberland, R.I., and sold from November 2006 through May 2007 for about $2. The necklace has a 30-inch chain and a spinning metal pendant.

If the recall of Thomas & Friends trains and TOBY & ME jewelry sets sound familiar, they should. Those recalls expand recalls issued earlier this year.

On June 13, toy importer RC2 Corp of Oak Brook, Ill., (which issued today's Thomas & Friends recall) recalled 1.5 million other Thomas & Friends railway toys because of lead paint. And on Aug. 22, about 14,000 TOBY & ME jewelry sets were recalled.

 

Swing Set Recall

Yesterday, about 670 swing sets made in the U.S. by BCI Burke Company of Fond du Lac, Wis., were recalled because of a fall hazard. The firm has received four reports of the swing set beam breaking and one report of a child bruised from falling from the swing.

For more information on the swing set recall, call Burke's customer service at (800) 356-2070 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central time Monday through Friday or visit the firm's web site at www.bciburke.com.
