“RC2 has determined that the surface paints on the recalled products contain lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.”
Most of the recalled vehicles and wooden train set components are colored red, but some are yellow or brown. See also the recall poster for more photos and descriptions of the recalled items.
I believe our son Sammy has four of the recalled items on his train table right now. Because I also have a toddler in the house, I will return them right away for a replacement and a free gift. I’ll need to mail them, along with the Replacement Request Form to:
Attn: Wooden Vehicle Recall
2021 9th Street SE
Sammy will have to be without his beloved red engines and fire trucks for six to eight weeks. Hopefully they will make it worth his while with the “free gift.” I wonder if it will be one gift per shipment, or per recalled item. I guess we’ll find out in a few months.
