The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with FloraCraft Corp, today announced a voluntary recall of about 930,000 Solar System Kits and DNA Kits because the surface coating on the educational kit’s wires can contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard.
This recall involves the “Solar System” and the “DNA” children’s educational craft kits sold under the FloraCraft and HYGLOSS brand names. The kits contain green coated wires that measure 14 ½ inches long and Styrofoam shapes. The following model numbers are included in this recall. The model number is located on the kit’s packaging.
Consumers should immediately take the craft kit’s wires away from children and contact FloraCraft toll-free at (866) 775-8781, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.floracraft.com to obtain free replacements.
