Harry Potter bookends - Product Recall

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 36,000 Harry Potter Bookends. The paint on the bookends contains excessive levels of lead, which can be hazardous to the health of children.

The bookends were made in Hong Kong and imported by Giftco Inc., of Vernon Hills, Ill. They were sold through elementary school fundraising programs as well as discount and dollar stores nationwide from June 2004 through January 2006 for between $3 and $28.

The bookends are made from poly-stone in the shape of characters from the Harry Potter book series. The characters include Harry Potter, Hedwig and Hermione, and Crookshank.

If you have one of the recalled bookends, you should immediately take them away from your children and return them to Giftco for a refund. You can reach Giftco by calling (888) 448-6728 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit their Web site.
