Some 300 wooden toys were recalled, Dec. 30, 2009, due to a violation of lead paint ban. The voluntary recall includes Oozora and Shin-Fuji Kendama Japanese Wooden Skill Ball Toys distributed by Kendamaspot LLC, of Redmond, Washington.
The toys were recalled due to excessive amounts of lead in the paint, which is in violation of the federal lead paint standard.
Recalled Toys Description
The recalled toys have a ball connected by a string to a handle with three cups and a spike on top. The toy parts that are in violation of the lead paint standards are the red and green balls on the Oozora and the red balls on the Shin Fuji. All of the toys should have a Japanese Kendama Association sticker affixed to them.
The recalled toys would have been purchased at either Kendamaspot’s website or at a cultural festival in Washington State between July 2008 and April 2009. The toys sold for approximately $20 each.
