NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled more than 20,000 Grizzly Children’s Tool Kits due to excessive lead levels.
Also, the toy goggles and hardhats that come with the Grizzly Industrial kits do not meet toy safety standards.
Model H3044 is a 12-piece kit that includes a helmet, goggles, tape measure, tool belt, hammer, pair of leather gloves, ruler, carpenter’s square, level, bottle of chalk and suspenders.
Model H5855 includes goggles, tape measure, wooden tool caddy, hammer, ruler, carpenter’s square, level, screwdriver, pliers and an adjustable wrench.
They were sold at Grizzly Industrial’s showrooms nationwide and online at grizzly.com and Amazon.com.
The tool kits should be immediately taken away from children. Consumers can contact Grizzly Industrial for a refund. Grizzly Industrial can be called toll-free at 888-615-7944 anytime or emailed at email@example.com.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it has identified no level of lead in blood that would be safe for children.
“Even low levels of lead in blood have been shown to affect IQ, ability to pay attention, and academic achievement. And effects of lead exposure cannot be corrected,” the CDC says.
