Boy Scouts Of America Issues Neckerchief Slide Recall Due To Lead
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – If you’ve got a Boy Scout in your life, you’d better check his neckerchief slide.
The Boy Scouts of America on Thursday issued a voluntary recall of certain units of the Wolf, Bear, Lion and Webelos neckerchief slides sold between February and August of 2018, due to lead content. The slides were shipped to retail locations nationwide and were sold online.
The affected slides include the PO numbers 200233281, 200236630, 200228276 and 200231755. The PO numbers can be found on the tag attached to the back of the slide.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, “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.”
No injuries have been reported.
The neckerchiefs, which were manufactured in China, contain “levels of lead that exceed the federal lead content ban,” according to the CPSC. “Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.”
The BSA will accept slides that no longer have the tag attached.
“The safety of our products is our number one priority,” according to a customer service FAQ released by the Boy Scouts of America. “Our quality control procedures include factory inspections, finished goods testing, and testing of raw materials. We are dedicated to maintaining product quality and safety. Once again, we are not aware of any injury resulting from the use of these products.”
