Items Recalled Due to Risk of Lead Poisoning
                 

 

Lead can be found in many places inside and outside your home. Lead is a poison that can harm the brain, kidneys and other organs in the body.

Children and pregnant women are most at risk. Lead can make it hard for children to learn and behave properly.

The most common sources of lead exposure are old paint, soil and house dust. Lead has also been found in other imported products, such as home remedies, candies and toys.
