Spongebob Toys Recalled

The government said an Ohio importer has recalled nearly 250,000 Spongebob Squarepants address books and journals manufactured in China.

The consumer product safety commission said the spiral metal bindings on the books might contain hazardous levels of lead paint.

The recall involves address books and journals sold in retail stores nationwide from June 2006 through July 2007. They have a black metal spiral binding and show the Spongebob Squarepants character in various outfits on the front cover.

Children who ingest lead-laced paint can suffer brain damage. The company said it has received no reports of injury.
