(AP) – Curious George is the latest victim of Chinese-made toy recalls.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says about 175,000 Curious George Plush Dolls have been recalled because they have too much lead in their surface paint.
The recalled dolls have a plastic face and are sold in five different models. They were sold with Curious George story or activity books at stores nationwide from December 2005 through August 2007. Consumers can contact manufacturer Marvel Toys for a refund.
Meanwhile, about 51,000 Children’s Fashion Sunglasses have also been recalled due to dangerous lead levels. The yellow colored shades were made in China and sold at Dollar General stores from March 2005 through October 2007.
No injuries have been reported in either case.
