RECALL: Toy Figures Due to Lead Paint

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Henry Gordy International Inc of New Jersey, today announced a voluntary recall about 380,000 “Galaxy Warriors” Toy Figures. Surface paints on the recalled toys contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard. There were no reported injuries or incidents. The posable spaceman figures are about 4½-inches tall and come with two accessories. They were sold in various colors including yellow, grey, silver, blue, green, gold, black, and red. They were sold at Family Dollar Stores nationwide from January 2006 through October 2007 for about $1 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should take the recalled toys away from children immediately and return the toy to the firm for a full refund plus postage. For additional information, contact Henry Gordy International toll-free at 888-790-2700 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday.
