Comments Off

DDI Inc., in cooperation with the U.S. Product Safety Commission (CPSC), voluntarily recalled approximately 3,000 Construction Play Sets because the surface paint on the toys contains lead.

To date, the company has not received any reports of injury.

The toy recalls involves 136-piece Mega Construction Play Sets –- Item No. 911346 -– and includes various other toy construction equipment, buildings, roads and vehicles.

The toys were sold nationwide from October 2008 to November 2008, for $20.

Consumers are advised to take the recalled toys away from small children immediately and to contact the company to receive a full refund.
