More Toy Recalls

Lead concerns have prompted more toy recalls. The recall involves more than 600,000 toys and children's necklaces made in China.

Among the recalled items are RC2 Corporation's "Knights of the Sword" series toys and some of its Thomas and Friends items. This is the second recall from the Thomas & Friends product line.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the items are being recalled because they contain dangerous levels of lead. The CPSC announced seven recalls in all.

Target, the importer of Happy Giddy gardening tools and children's Sunny Patch chairs, recalled about 350,000 items of the product. They were sold nationwide from August 2006 through August 2007.

And the death of a child has prompted a recall of infant play yards made in China for Kolcraft Enterprises of Chicago.

The company is voluntarily recalling the toy in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

A CPSC news release says the agency got a report of a 10-month-old boy who was strangled by a changing table restraint strap that was hanging down into the "Sesame Beginnings" travel play yard.

Twelve different play yards, all of which have the changing table and the restraining strap hazard, are included in the recall, which totals 425,000 units.

The play yards were sold at retail stores nationwide from January 2001 through September 2007 for between $50 and $130.
