The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Far East Brokers and Consultants Inc., have announced a voluntary recall of about 14,000 Leisure Ways® Brands Kids Outdoor Furniture because the red surface paint on the furniture contains excessive levels of lead, a violation of the federal lead paint standard.
This recall involves red ladybug-themed kids’ metal-framed outdoor furniture sold under the Leisure Ways brand. The recalled items have large ladybug images on the fabric and include a camp chair, folding chair, moon chair, double-seat swing chair and patio set that includes two chairs, a table and an umbrella. A tracking label sewn into the seat of each chair includes the production date “December/2012” and the words, “Distributed by: Far East Brokers and Consultants, Inc.”
Consumers should immediately take the recalled outdoor furniture away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
