RECALL: Knights of the Sword Toys Due to Lead Paint

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with RC2 Corp of Illinois, yesterday announced a voluntary recall of Britain’s “Knights of the Sword” Series Toys
which are distributed by RC2 Corp. Surface paints on the toy knights contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard. There were no injuries or incidents. The three recalled silver knight toys are mounted on red horses sold individually in see-through blister cards. “Britains” and “Knights of the Sword” are printed on the top of the card in the packaging. The recalled toys include a mounted silver knight on a red horse with an axe; a mounted silver knight on a red horse with two hands on a raised weapon; and a mounted silver knight on a red horse with a lance. They were sold at specialty toy stores nationwide from April 2004 through March 2006 for about $8 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should take these recalled toys away from young children immediately and contact RC2 to receive a full refund. For additional information, contact RC2 toll-free at 866-725-4407 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit
