RECALL: Go Diego Go Boat Toys Due To Lead Paint Violations

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Fisher-Price of New York, yesterday announced a voluntary recall about 38,000 Go Diego Go Animal Rescue Boats. Surface paints on the toys contain excessive levels of lead, which violates the federal standard prohibiting lead paint on children’s toys. There have been no reports of injuries. The toy is an orange and yellow boat that squirts water. Cartoon character Diego is in the driver’s seat. “Fisher Price,” product number K3413, and a date code between 137-7HF and 223-7HF are marked on the toys. They were sold at retail stores nationwide from June 2007 through October 2007 for about $15 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled toys away from children and contact Fisher-Price in order to receive a free replacement toy. Consumers need to return the recalled toys to Fisher-Price. For additional information, contact Fisher-Price at 888-299-0579 anytime, or visit
