Recall this

What is safe? The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission's website has announced eight recalls in the past six days alone, all because of lead paint content: (Click here for a reminder on the dangers of lead paint.)

aluminium coated water bottles; Frankenstein glasses (drinking, that is); Pirates of the Caribbean toy flashlights;
Baby Einstein color blocks; wooden pull toys; Totally Me! decorating sets;
book clip & book marks; Key chains with one-word values on them, like Love and Wisdom.

All of the recalls were voluntary and no injuries have been reported in any of them. Oh -- each item was made in China.
