RECALL: Bookmarks Due To Lead Paint Violation

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Antioch Publishing of Ohio, announced a voluntary recall of about 200,000 Cool Clip™ and Mini Cool Clip™ Bookmarks of various styles. (An additional 150,000 bookmarks and journals were recalled on October 4, 2007). Paint on the clip of the bookmarks contains excessive levels of lead, which violates the federal lead paint standard. This recall involves various designs of the Cool Clip and Mini Cool Clip bookmarks. They were sold at book, card and gift stores nationwide from April 2003 through October 2007 for about $4 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately take the bookmarks away from children and contact Antioch Publishing for a refund. For additional information, contact Antioch Publishing at 800-543-1515 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or visit
