Roughly 2,000 toy military figures were recalled due to dangerous levels of lead paint. The recall was based on excessive amounts of lead found in the surface paint of the toy figurines.
Imported by Jide Trading, Inc., affected toys are mini military sets packaged on a blister card. The military figure stands about four inches tall and comes with several accessories. The toys could have been purchased in dollar stores and other discount stores between November 2008 and April 2009.
