RECALL:Children's Watering Cans Sold Exclusively at Craft Stores for Lead Paint Violation

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Jo-Ann Stores Inc of Ohio, today announced a voluntary recall about 6,000 Robbie Ducky™ Kids Watering Cans. The beak of the watering can contains lead in the paint, which violates the federal law prohibiting lead paint on children's toys. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. There were no reports of injuries. The recalled Robbie Ducky™ Kids Watering Can is yellow with an orange beak and is about 10 inches high by 6 inches wide. "Robbie Ducky™ Garden Collection Duck Watering Can" is printed on a sticker on the bottom of the watering can. They were sold exclusively at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores nationwide from February 2007 through August 2007 for about $10 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately take the watering can away from children and return it to any Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store for a full refund. For additional information, contact Jo-Ann Stores Inc. toll-free at 888-739-4120 ext. 7 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or email the firm at guest.services@jo-annstores.com or visit http://www.joann.com/
