Lead-Tainted Children’s Sunglasses Recalled

The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection is alerting parents and children’s caregivers to a new recall of children’s sunglasses that have been deemed unsafe due to excessive levels of lead.

Consumers should immediately take these sunglasses away from children and return them to the importer for a free replacement or refund, including free shipping and handling.

About 215,000 pairs of the sunglasses were sold nationwide at CVS, K-mart, Rite-Aid, Walgreens and other retail stores nationwide starting in December 2013 for between $7 and $13.under Disney, Marvel and Sears/Kmart brands. They come in a variety of colors, and included printed images of characters on the frames. Surface paint on the sunglasses contains excessive levels of lead, which is prohibited under federal law.
