We had recalls this week for a number of safety reasons, but lead was not one of them.
However, Nike recalled football helmet chin straps. The plastic cup can break and that could put the player at risk for facial or head injuries. They sold at sporting good stores around the country, and on Nike's website, from April 2006 through last October. Nike recommends you stop using the chin straps immediately, and get in touch with them at 888-583-6453 or log onto their website for a new product voucher.
Also recalled due to the threat of injury, plastic folding chairs made by Iceberg Enterprises. The chairs can collapse while you sit in them, and have caused three injuries so far. They sold at office supply stores across the country from August 2005 through July 2007. You can call Iceberg at 1-800-580-1310 for a free repair kit.
Jetmax International based in Irving recalled these Children's Wooden Storage Racks because they can easily tip over, and one already suffocated an eight month old. They sold at Wal-Mart stores under the name Home Trend Kids 9 Canvas Bin Boy's and Girl's Organizers, from August 2004 through July 2005. You can call the company at 1-800-689-2168 for a free stabilizing repair kit.
Finally a recall for a fire hazard. These Birch Bark Wrapped Candles sold at specialty stores around the US from last September through October. A company called Roost imported them from China. When the candle burns down, the Birch Wrapping can ignite. You can return them to the store you bought them at for a full refund.
