Boy Scouts recalls neckerchief slides due to lead paint

The Boy Scouts of America is recalling thousands of neckerchief slides because of high levels of lead paint.

About 110,000 of the brass items are involved. They were sold in four styles: red wolf, green bear, orange lion and blue Webelos.

“Made in China” and P.O. number 200228276, 20023175, 200233281 or 200236630 are printed on a white label attached to the back of the neckerchief slide.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled neckerchief slides, take them away from children and return them to any Boy Scouts of America retail store or distributor for a free replacement neckerchief slide, including shipping, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
