Fisher-Price Recalls Toys Due to Lead Poisoning Hazard

August 2, 2007

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Fisher-Price Inc., of East Aurora, N.Y., announced a voluntary recall of several types of Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, and other children’s toys due to surface paints on the toys possibly containing excessive levels of lead.

The recall includes about 967,000 various figures and toys manufactured in China between April 19, 2007 and July 6, 2007 and sold alone or as part of sets. The model names and product numbers for the recalled toys, sold at retail stores nationwide from May 2007 through August 2007, are listed on CPSC’s Website at No incidents or injuries were reported at press time.

The CPSC advises consumers to immediately take the recalled toys away from children and contact Fisher-Price. Consumers will need to return the product and will receive a voucher for a replacement toy of the consumer’s choice (up to the value of the returned product).
