Kids’ Outdoor Furniture Recalled Over Lead Paint

August 2, 2013

Federal regulators said Wednesday that 14,000 sets of ladybug-themed kids’ outdoor furniture are being recalled due to excessive levels of lead paint.

The metal-framed outdoor furniture was sold under the Leisure Ways brand at retailers nationwide between January and May for between $10 and $50. The products were made in China and distributed by Far East Brokers and Consultants Inc. of Jacksonville, Fla.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recalled items have large ladybug images on the fabric and include a camp chair, folding chair, moon chair, double-seat swing chair. The patio set 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 stop using this product and return it to the retailer where they bought it for a full refund.

No injuries or incidents have been reported related to the recall.
