Dept of Consumer Protection – Sunglasses Alert

SunglassesImg2I was just forwarded a press release from the Department of Consumer Protection concerning a alert sent out concerning children’s sunglasses tainted with lead. It’s not political news but I wanted to share this information with the readers and let you know what this has been sent out.

The press release is quoted below

The Department of Consumer Protection is alerting parents and caregivers to a new recall of children’s sunglasses that have been deemed unsafe due to excessive levels of lead.

Consumers should immediately take these sunglasses away from children and return them to the store for a free replacement of refund.

About 215,000 pairs of the sunglasses were sold nationwide at CVS, K-mart, Rite-Aid and Walgreen’s since December 2013.

They sold for between $7 and $13.

The graph below displays the Disney “Cars” version. The graph below details all sunglasses included in this recall.
