Recall Roundup

 This week's recalls include items for your children, and items you may use around the home.
 NewsChannel 10's Michelle Langowski has the information in our "Recall Roundup."
 
* A popular brand of children's travel cases is being recalled after excessive levels of lead was found on the surface coating. Nearly 140,000 Circo travel cases are said to be violating the federal lead paint standard. They were sold exclusively at Target stores from April through August of last year for about $20.

The recall involves:
- Circo girls' 17" travel case - pink or teal - 618842135844 - Beginning with 01/11 thru 08/11
- Circo boys' 17" travel case - red or blue - 618842135868 - Beginning with 01/11 thru 08/11
If you have this recalled product, you should return it to any Target store for a refund.
For more information, you can contact the company at (800) 440-0680 or www.target.com

* Thousands of children's bedroom furniture are being recalled after reports of the product falling on kids. The Madeline Bed Canopy is made by Pottery Barn Kids and was sold nationwide from 2003 through last summer. The company says the connections of the posts to the top rails of the canopy can come apart from the bed and fall on children below.

There have been more than 30 reports of components of the canopy falling, including one report of a cut that required stitches and nine other reports of minor cuts, bruises and/or bumps.

If you have this product, you should immediately remove the canopy from the bed and contact the company at (855) 662-4114 or www.potterybarnkids.com

* And more than 4,500 portable gas grills are being recalled after reports the grills can catch fire. The concern is the regulators on the "O-Grills" can leak gas, which then can ignite and burn those using the grill. The recall involves Iroda O-Grill models 1000 and 3000 produced before 2010. The grills come in orange, red, green, blue, silver and black and have the words "O-Grill" stamped on the metal grill cover.

Recalled O-Grills do not have ventilation slots in the regular cover where the propane bottle screws in. Grills with ventilation slots in the regulator cover are not subject to the recall. They were sold at several retailers including Walgreens and Dillards nationwide.

You should stop using the portable grills and contact the manufacturer, Uni-O at (888) 847-8968 for a free replacement.
