RECALL:"Cars" Toy Chests Sold at Toys "R" Us

“Cars” Toy Chests sold at Toys “R” Us are being recalled because of a lead poisoning hazard. The red paint on the partition panels of the toy box contains high levels of lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.

The wooden toy storage box is decorated with graphics from the animated movie “Cars.” It has three removable cloth toy bins. “Delta” and the PO# are printed on the side panel. Only toy boxes with “PO#FJ505192” or “PO#FJ605042” marked on the side panel are included in this recall.

The chests were sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores from March 2006 through August 2006 for about $50.

Consumers should take the recalled toy chests away from children immediately and return them to any Toys “R” Us for a credit or refund.

Consumer Contact: For more information, call Delta Enterprise at (877) 660-3777 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at

The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
