The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of two potentially dangerous toys from the market. The Commission reported a recall of 1.7 million Little Tikes toy tool sets because the small toy nails presented a choking hazard. In 2009, the company made a similar recall after 2 children were hospitalized after swallowing the toy nails.
Toy cars distributed by Mega Wholesales Corporation were also recalled. Some 1,900 toy cars were pulled from the market due to high lead levels in the surface paint. According to the agency, the lead levels were above those allowed by federal standards.
