XL Machine Ltd. Announces Recall of Dollhouse Furniture Sets Sold at Target Stores

 

XL Machine Ltd., of Eden Prairie, Minn., is voluntarily recalling about 10,000 sets of dollhouse bathroom furniture. The yellow paint on the furniture contains lead, which can present a risk of lead poisoning to young children.

The Little Tree natural wood dollhouse bathroom furniture sets contain a tub, sink with mirror, toilet, shower, bench, towel rack and a wooden doll. The doll has hair made of yarn and bendable wire legs and arms. The fixtures on the bathroom furniture are painted yellow. The packaging for the set reads "Little Tree," "Distributed by Target Corporation," and "MADE IN CHINA." Target stores nationwide sold these furniture sets from August 2000 through June 2001 for about $15.

Consumers should immediately take these dollhouse furniture sets away from children, and return the sets to the Target store where purchased for a refund. For more information, call XL Machine Ltd. at (866) 746-8097 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit Target's web site at www.target.com.
