Melissa & Doug Recall

We've just learned of product recalls of the following Melissa & Doug toys:  Slice and Bake Cookies (reorder 4074), Shape Sorting Cube (reorder 496) and Pound a Peg (reorder 575).  We will be removing these from our shelves and contacting our registered customers who have purchased these items.   The surface paint on the toys contain barium in excess of the allowable limit.

The company has told us that these products passed US guidelines, but that the Canadian guidelines are more stringent.

US Safety Website

Leave it to our American neighbours to be more on the ball in providing the latest information on recalls.  Here is a link to the U,S, Consumer Product Safety Commission's website:

Canadian Government Safety Website

Here's a link to the Canadian government's safety website, which contains information on recalled products.  It seems to cover food and toys.  Our Health Minister Tony Clement mentioned this website in a speech to the Economic Club of Toronto yesterday.  Unfortunately, I just checked the site and it doesn't even mention the serious Aqua Dots recall that happened this week. So it doesn't look like a good source of the latest information, but may be a good place to look up past recalls.
