Children’s Rubber Critter Toys Recalled Due To High Lead Paint Levels
These little rubber critter toys look lame as hell but if you happen to have one or a full set, you'll want to throw them away immediately or request a refund.
According to NBC25, the recall involves all rubber critter toys sold in various colors and animal shapes including octopuses, alligators, chickens, frogs, pigs, penguins, and cows. It affects about 31,200 units.
I think the thing that shocks me the most is the fact that these cheesy little toys cost $10 a piece or $145 for a set. $145 for a set? My god, that's a lot of money for garbage.
Hazard: The orange and yellow surface paint colors on the rubber critter toys contain levels of lead that violate the federal lead paint ban. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.
