Product Recall: Jo-Ann Fabrics Children's Watering Cans

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Toys

This cute little Robbie Ducky™ Kids Watering Can was made in China and guess what the manufacturer used to color the beak? Lead paint, of course. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Jo-Ann Stores Inc., of Hudson, Ohio, has announced a voluntary recall of the watering cans because even my dog knows by now that lead paint is toxic and harmful if ingested by young children.

About 6,000 of these watering cans were sold exclusively at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores nationwide from February 2007 through August 2007 for about $10.

If you have one of these Robbie Ducky watering cans, you are instructed to stop using it immediately and return it to any Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store for a full refund.

For additional information, contact Jo-Ann Stores Inc. at (888) 739-4120 ext. 7 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or email the firm at You can also visit their Web site.
