McDonald's Corp. and Bobble Dreams Have Recalled Chicago Bears Bobble Head Figurines

Oak Brook, IL (SafetyAlerts) - McDonald's Corp. and Bobble Dreams USA have recalled about 100,000 bobble head figurines. The paint on some of the figurines contains excess levels of lead. If ingested over time by children, the lead from the paint may present a lead poisoning hazard.

McDonald's has not received any reports of injuries or incidents involving these figurines. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The recalled bobble head figurines are designed in the likeness of NFL players Brian Urlacher and Anthony Thomas. The 7-inch tall figurines have heads on springs that cause them to bobble from side to side. The figurines are dressed in Chicago Bears' uniforms. The McDonald's logo and the player's name are printed across the front of the base. Labels on the bottom of the figurine read, "BOBBLE DREAMS USA" and "MADE IN CHINA," and "OFFICIAL NFL LICENSED PRODUCT."

McDonald's restaurants sold the figurines in the greater Chicago area, Northwest Indiana, Central Illinois and Rockford as part of a promotion that ran from August 19, 2002 through September 12, 2002 for about $5.00.

Consumers should keep these figurines away from children and contact McDonald's at (800) 244-6227 to receive return and refund instructions
