Fake Halloween teeth could be hazardous to your health. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling the $2 packages of "Ugly Teeth" for containing excessive amounts of lead.
It's the latest in a long line of Chinese-made toys and novelty items recalled because of lead.
The CPSC estimates that retailers nationwide have sold about 43,000 eight-piece packages of the party favors since last January. There have been no reports of injuries or illnesses.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called for CPSC chief Nancy Nord to resign over the millions of Chinese-made toys that have been recalled in recent months. Pelosi says Nord has failed to see the seriousness of the situation. Nord says she has no intention of resigning.
