Curious George Recalled Over Lead

Comments Off

Over 200,000 Curious George stuffed animals have been recalled because of too much lead in the paint used to make the dolls. The recalled stuffed animals were made in China, which has seen a string of recalls this year over product safety.

The Curious George dolls were sold form 2005 to 2007 in stores nationwide. The dolls were sold in five different models all with a plastic face. They came with an activity book.

The stuffed animals were distributed by Mattel. The company is offering a full refund to those who purchased them. Lead can cause injury and brain damage to those that have been exposed to it. Children are most at risk because of their developing bodies. The Curious George dolls had a retail price of around $15.
