Recall of Little Wood Wagon in US

The following media release from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Radio Flyer, was taken from the internet. It begs the question - is the lack of recalls in Australia due to there being no toys on the market with excessive amounts of heavy metals OR do Australian authorities simply not test?

WASHINGTON, D.C. October 21, 1996 - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Radio Flyer Inc. of Chicago, Ill., is voluntarily recalling 14,000 children's toy Little Wood Wagons. The wagons contain a prohibited level of lead in the red painted sides that can cause lead poisoning in young children, who may ingest the paint.

Retailers sold the wagons nationwide from June 1996 through September 1996 for between $20 and $25 each. This recall does not involve any other wagon sold by Radio Flyer. Contact: Nychelle White, ph 00 11 1 301 504 0580 Ext. 1192
