SpongeBob SquarePants Recall

NEWS ALERT FOR PARENTS

I just heard something on the news about a recall of some SpongeBob SquarePants address books and journals. Since this charactter is so popular with kids (and college students too), your children or their friends may have these items.

The reason for the recall is an unacceptable amount of lead in the paint on the bindings of the address books and journals. The items were sold at retails stores between Jine of 2006 and July of 2007.

The CPSC lists the affected UPC numbers as 80773007505 for the address book and 80773002260, 80773075501 and 80773007551 for the journal.

If you find that your kids have the SpongeBob products in question, they shojld not be allowed to keep them or continue playing with them.

Parents can obtain a full refund for them by removing the UPC tag and contacting the manufacturer, Martin Desings, Inc. at their toll-free number of at (866) 898-0261 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

The official press release from the Consumer Product Safety Commission is here.

Also, parents, in case you missed it a few weeks ago, there was a Fisher-Price Toy Recall on some Sesame Street Character and Dora The Explorer toys.
