Water bottles, Peanuts toys recalled this week

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Thousands of products are being pulled from shelves this week due to injury hazards.

Pottery Barn is recalling water bottles marketed to children because the gray paint on the metal portion of the bottle can contain excessive levels of lead, the company said.

According to officials, the paint violates the federal lead pain standard.

The Avengers and Darth Vader themed bottles are included in this recall. A tracking label on the underside of the bottle contains the date code printed along with the words “Pottery Barn Kids,” “Lot 1 Batch 1” and “Jinhua, China.”

Consumers should take the bottles away from their children and return them for a full refund.

Peanuts Flying Ace ride-on toys are being recalled by LaRose Industries. The toys’ blue hub caps can detach from the wheel’s axle, posing a choking hazard to young children, according to the company.

Nearly 11,000 of these toys are being recalled and they were sold exclusively at Target from July 2015 to August 2015.

A hang tag attached to the product has #38126 printed on it.

Consumers should stop using the toys and return them for a full refund.

And a reminder to all – daylight savings time is this weekend! When you turn your clocks back an hour, make sure to put fresh batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. This is important because they need new batteries every year to work properly.

Experts say 3 out of 5 fire deaths occur in homes with no smoke detectors or homes without working alarms.
