Lead Exposure Hazard Recalls

RECALL: Thomas The Train Due To Lead Hazard Warnings – AGAIN!

There is a huge list of products being recalled today and I am currently putting a post together with pictures so that you can check your toy boxes AGAIN!

I am not sure how many parents are still purchasing ‘Thomas The Train’ products, but today brings yet another recall of more than 200,000 pieces.

Add this number to the previous recall and you have approximately 1.7 million toys in total.

Here is the information:
