LOS ANGELES Thousands of sleeping bags and magic wands contaminated by excessive levels of lead paint are being recalled by The Walt Disney Co., federal inspectors said Thursday.
The recall targets 4,100 Pirates of the Caribbean sleeping bags and 8,000 Tinker Bell wands sold at Disney Stores nationwide between April and October 2007, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
No injuries have been reported, the agency said.
The sleeping bags have lead paint on the zipper, while the wand contains lead paint on pearl beads in flowers on the top of the toy, the agency said.
Consumers were advised to stop using the bags and wands and return them to stores for a full refund.
The problems were discovered during random product tests late last year, when the stores were owned by Children's Place Retail Stores Inc., said Gary Foster, a spokesman for The Walt Disney Co.'s consumer products division.
The products, which were made in China, were pulled off store shelves at the time, and Children's Place reported the problem to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Foster said. The recall concerns toys that had been sold beforehand.
