More lead recall news reported here. This time they got Winnie. (Sigh.)

According to the AP:

Retailer J.C. Penney recalled thousands of Winnie-the-Pooh doll play sets, wooden art boxes and horse-themed holiday ornaments because of unsafe levels of lead paint, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

The largest number of items recalled were 49,000 Winnie-the-Pooh play sets made in China. Each 23-piece play set included a baby doll, playpen, swing, stroller and sold for about $40, the agency said.
