News: Thomas Trains Toy Recall

Lots of wooden train (mostly red) sets & components sold at toy stores and various retailers nationwide from January 2005 through June 2007 are being recalled.

The recall involves only the specific wooden vehicles, buildings and other train set components for young children listed in the chart below. The makers has determined that the surface paints on the recalled products contain lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. Nothing has been reported yet. My kids play with many of the effected toys and their lead levels were checked 2 months ago (we moved) and they were very safe (so no need to panic).
