Bonne Bell Recalls Children’s Makeup Bags for Lead

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, in conjunction with the Bonne Bell Company, announced a recall today of several Smackers and Bonne Bell makeup bags because the clasp has excess lead.  I’m posting it because the recall announcement came out late on a Friday before a 3 day weekend, so I think it may be overlooked in the rush to enjoy the last weekend of summer.  And, before you dismiss the recall because it is just the clasp, keep in mind the tragic death of a 4 year old Minneapolis boy from lead poisoning after ingesting a small heart-shaped charm in 2006.

So, I’ve posted pictures of the recalled totes.  If you have one of these in your house, make sure your children don’t play with it and check the codes to see if it has been recalled.
