Library Toy Recall

State health officials are asking parents to return about 4,000 toys containing dangerous levels of lead, that could be a threat to children if signifant levels enter the bloodstream.

The toys were given away at 14 Kentucky libraries this summer.

Libraries that distributed the toys include Mercer County Library, Laurel County Library, Lexington Public Library, Logan County Public Library, Hardin County Public Library, Cynthiana/Harrison County Library, Allen County Public Library, Lillian Webb Memorial Library in Neon, Mason County Public Library, Boone County Public Library, Woodford County Public Library, Jackson County Public Library, Carroll County Public Library and Barr Memorial Library in Fort Knox.

The bendable cat and dog toys were found to contain up to six-and-a-half times the allowable lead content.

The libraries are contacting the families that received them.

The toys were found to have high levels of lead after a librarian in Bloomington, Ind., suggested they be tested.
