Marx Brush Manufacturing Company Recalls "Do It Yourself" No. 2 Paint Brushes

WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Marx Brush Manufacturing Company of Palisades Park, NJ is voluntarily recalling approximately 6,000 "Do It Yourself" paint brush sets, because the paint on the wooden handles of the brushes contains excess lead.

Each set comes with two half-inch flat edge brushes, one quarter-inch flat edge brush, and one #2 and one #4 round- pointing edge brush. All are camel hair brushes with painted handles in assorted colors.

The paint brush sets were imported from Korea and were sold nationwide from February 1990 through March 1991. Each set sold for approximately $3.35.

The package reads in part: "DO-IT YOURSELF HOBBY & CRAFT BRUSHES" and has the number "033572-10001-4" printed beneath the bar code symbol on the back of the package.

Neither the CPSC nor the company is aware of any injuries involving this product. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent any possibility of injury.

Consumers are urged to discontinue use of the paint brushes and return them to the retailer where purchased for a full refund of the purchase price. Consumers with questions about this recall may contact Marx Brush Mfg. Co. at 1-800-654-6279.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is announcing this recall as part of its mission to protect the public from unreasonable risks of injury and death associated with consumer products. The Commission's objective is to help reduce the estimated 28.5 million injuries and 21,600 deaths that occur each year with the 15,000 different types of consumer products within CPSC's jurisdiction.
