Followers of Childsafetyblog.org may have read about recent lead paint violations causing some children’s furniture painted with lead paint that exceeded the federal lead paint standards to be recalled. This particular recall involves Girls’ and Boys’ 17″ Travel Cases that are coated with excessive amounts of lead.
The Girls’ 17″ Travel Case has the pattern of hearts, butterflies and daisies against a pink or teal background with a plush butterfly toy attached to the zipper pull. The Girls’ travel case has a UPC number of 618842135844. The Boys’ 17″ Travel Case has a pattern with jet planes against a red or blue airplane background with a blue plush jet plane attached to the zipper pull. The Boys’ travel case has a UPC number of 618842135868. On both versions, the Circo brand label can be located on the handle on the top of the travel case. The UPC code can be found on the round Circo hangtags. Date codes beginning with 01/11 thru 08/11 can be located on a second white tag sewn inside the cover of the zippered main compartment of the travel case.
These travel cases were manufactured in China, imported and sold by Target stores throughout the U.S. and online from April 2011 through August 2011, for approximately $21. Consumers should remove the travel cases from children’s access and return them to any Target store for a refund. Consumers can contact Target at (800) 440-0680 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.target.com for additional information or instructions.
