Boy Scout Neckerchief Slides Recalled Due to Lead:


The Boys Scouts of America has announced the recall of more than 100,000 neckerchief slides due to a violation of the federal lead content ban.  According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the colored enamel on the slides contains high levels of lead.  The brass neckerchief slides were sold at Scouts of America stores and authorized distributors nationwide and online at scoutshop.org from February through August.  They came in four styles: red wolf, green bear, orange lion, and blue Webelos.  They had “Made in China” and P.O. number 200228276, 200233281, or 200236630 printed on a white label attached to the back of the neckerchief slide.  Anyone who purchased one of the recalled slides should take them away from children and return them to any Boy Scouts of America retail store or distributor for a free replacement.
