CPSC Announces Recall Of Banned "Snoopy" Bank

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 12) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in cooperation with Ideal Toy Corporation, Hollis, New York, today announced the recall of 60,000 banned "Snoopy" toy banks. The paint used on these products has a lead content which exceeds the Commission permissible level of 0.5%.

Effective February 28, 1978, the maximum permissible level for paint used on toys manufactured after that date will be reduced to 0.06%.

The agency's lead-in-paint regulation is intended to reduce the risk of lead poisoning in children who may ingest paint chips or peelings. No injuries or illnesses associated with these toys have been reported to the Commission. A routine check by Ideal revealed the excessive lead content in the paint.

The multicolored banks are approximately six inches high and represent the "Snoopy" character in the following costumes or poses:

Snoopy "Joe Cool" Bank
Snoopy Santa Bank
Snoopy in Tuxedo Bank
Snoopy Dog House Bank
Model #5272-0;
Model #5270-4;
Model #5273-8;
Model #5271-2.

Persons who have these banks should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

For further information, consumers can call Ideal collect at (212) 454-5000.
