HARTFORD, March 31 – The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection is alerting consumers to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commissionâ€™s voluntary recall of childrenâ€™s Flower and Insect Painted Wooden Beads, manufactured in China and imported by S&S Worldwide Inc., of Colchester, Connecticut, due to excessive levels of lead paint contained on the wooden beads.
The children’s painted wooden beads are in the shapes of insects and flowers. They were sold in assorted colors and designs and measure about one (1) inch in size. They were sold in 1/2 lb. bags. Model number BE1190, “S&S Worldwide Inc” and “Made in China” is located on the bag of beads. (See photo below). This recalled product was sold at S&S Worldwide’s catalog and on the firm’s Web site at www.ssww.com from March 2008 through February 2010 for approximately $20.00 per 1/2 lb. bag.
Consumer Protection Commissioner Jerry Farrell Jr., recommends consumers immediately take the recalled beads away from children and contact S&S Worldwide for a full refund or replacement product. Although no injuries and/or incidents have been reported, the potential for injury is high. Lead paint is toxic and if ingested by young children, can cause serious health effects. For more information, contact S&S Worldwide toll free at (800) 937-3482 between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, email the firm at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.ssww.com/productsafety .
