Republican Family Values: Your Kids as Test Bunnies, Part II.
WASHINGTON, Nov 8 (Reuters) - Marvel Toys recalled about 175,000 Curious George plush dolls because the surface paint on the toy's plastic face and hat contain excessive levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Protection Agency said on Thursday.
Marvel Entertainment Inc (MVL.N: Quote, Profile, Research), which licenses comic-book characters, said earlier on Thursday that it was voluntarily recalling about 110,000 units. Those units are included in the CPSC's recall.
The CPSC recall involves 12-inch plush dolls with five themes: birthday, fireman, sweet dreams, tool time and tool time with a soft face.
The agency said consumers should immediately take away the recalled toysy from children and contact Marvel Toys at (800) 352-2064 to receive a full refund. (Reporting by Karey Wutkowski, editing by Leslie Gevirtz)
