Storage bins sold at Lowe’s recalled for lead

Children’s storage bins that were sold at Lowe’s have been recalled, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), due to potentially high levels of lead.

About 84,000 units manufactured by Magus Industry of Taiwan and imported by LG Sourcing of North Wilkesboro, N.C., have been recalled, according to the CPSC.

Surface paint on the storage bins could contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The products with scalloped edges were sold in pastel green or pink through Lowe’s stores nationwide from March 2007 through February 2008. The units cost about $6.
