The distributors of bendable toys given to children participating in a Pacific Grove reading program have announced they are recalling the toys.
Pacific Grove Public Library officials estimate they gave about 50 of the bendable dog and cat toys to the children during its summer reading club in June and July.
The distributors said the toys apparently exceed the maximum allowable lead limit under current federal regulations.
Library officials are asking parents of children who received the toys to return them to the library’s children department, where substitute reading reward prizes are available.
Dang. Exposure limits to lead? When we was kids we melted lead curtain weights to make fishing sinkers..
