Slinky Pull Toys Recalled

Hollidaysburg, PA (SafetyAlerts) - James Industries announced a voluntary recall of Slinky pull toys in the form of a train, worm, seal, frog, caterpillar, dalmation, and kitten.

The company has determined that the red paint used on the eyes, tongue, and cheeks of the toys may contain lead in excess of 0.06 percent and are not in compliance with CPSC regulations limiting lead content in paint on children's articles.

The pull toys all have red and white pull cords and come in two assortments:

Assortment #590

Model #200 - Slinky Train - red, white and blue
Model #225 - Slinky Dalmation - red, white and black
Model #310 - Slinky Caterpillar - dark green, light green, and yellow

Assortment #490

Model #425 - Slinky Seal - blue
Model #440 - Slinky Frog - green
Model #250 - Slinky Worm - red and yellow
Model #480 - Slinky Kitten - pink and blue

While thousands of these toys were sold nationwide in variety and chain stores since 1986, no injury reports or consumer complaints have been received by the company or CPSC.

Consumers should remove these toys from their children and return them to the store where purchased for an exchange or refund. Consumers may also return their Slinky toys to James Industries, Inc., Beaver Street Extension, P.O. Box 407, Hollidaysburg, PA 16648.
