Recall: Wooden Thomas the Tank Engine Toys
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced yesterday a recall of certain Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Toys sold between January 2005 and June 2007 due to lead in the paint. Read the CPSC news release and the recall web site. It looks like
you pay shipping charges they’ll reimburse you for shipping charges to receive a replacement and a "free gift." I own some of the recalled items, so I’ll report back as to the nature of the free gift.
