Due to the excessive amounts of lead found in the surface paint of the sunglasses, the company FGX International has announced a recall of nearly 215,000 pairs of children’s sunglasses. Prolonged exposure to lead in children can cause convulsions, stupor, hyperirritability and even more severe neurological effects that may lead to death. All of the children’s sunglasses come in a variety of 20 different styles featuring Disney, Marvel and Sears/Kmart brands. Check the left temple arm of the sunglasses for the style numbers.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and FGX International, no reports of illness or injury have occurred before this recall was announced. The lead-laden children’s sunglasses were manufactured in China. From December 2013 to March 2014, the recalled children’s sunglasses were sold at Bon Ton, CVS, K-mart, Rite-Aid, Walgreen and other retail stores across the nation. Each pair was sold for between $7 and $13.
In order to protect any nearby children or adults from the dangerous sunglasses, FGX International asks its consumers to immediately return the sunglasses to FGX International to receive a free replacement or refund, including free shipping and handling.
