According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), nearly 6,000 children’s chairs and swings are now under recall by Far East Brokers. The company learned that the screen-printing on both the chair and swing’s polyester fabric contains excessive and illegal levels of lead, thus putting consumers at risk of poisoning.
The recall comprises of the Leisure Ways® pink butterfly themed children’s camp chairs, moon chairs, and swings. Each of the recalled chairs and swings feature a metal frame and large red butterfly images on a pink polyester fabric. A tracking label sewn into the bottom of each chair seat should indicate the following: “Distributed by: Far East Brokers and Consultants, Inc.” and “Tracking # November/2015.”
The recalled children’s chairs and swings have not been linked to any incidents or injuries yet. The lead-tainted children’s furniture was manufactured in China.
From January 2016 through April 2016, the recalled children’s chairs and swings were sold for between $10 and $50 at Weis Markets, wholesale distributors, as well as grocery and drug store locations across the nation.
Consumers in possession of one or more of the recalled chairs and swings should put them out of children’s reach as soon as possible. The products can then be taken back to the store of purchase to receive a full refund.
