Grizzly Industrial of Bellingham, Wash., is recalling about 20,745 children’s tool kits in the U.S. and Canada.
The tool belt, hammer and suspenders (model H3044) contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead content standard. In addition, the toy goggles and hardhats do not meet toy safety requirements.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The recalled children’s tool kits have two different model numbers: H3044 and H5855.
Model H3044 is a 12-piece tool kit that contains a helmet, goggles, tape measure, tool belt, hammer, pair of leather gloves, ruler, carpenter’s square, level, bottle of chalk and suspenders.
Model H5855 is an 11-piece tool kit that contains goggles, tape measure, wooden tool caddy, hammer, ruler, carpenter’s square, level, screwdriver, pliers and an adjustable wrench.
Model numbers are printed on the front upper right hand corner of the packaging. “Grizzly Industrial” is printed on multiple items of the tool kits.
The tool kits, manufactured in China, were sold at Grizzly Industrial’s showrooms nationwide and online at www.grizzly.com and www.Amazon.com from September 2002, through November 2019, for about $20.
