Jesus Fish Beads recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Discount School Supply Jesus Fish Beads due to a lead paint violation.

The fish-shaped beads imported from China by Discount School Supply of Monterey, Calif., include surface paint with high levels of lead, the Commission said.

About 500 packages of assorted-colored beads were sold through the Discount School Supply Web site from August 2006 through December 2008 for about $5.

The beads have the word Jesus and the outline of a fish printed on each.

Consumers were advised to take the beads away from children and contact Discount School Supply for a refund or an exchange.

Consumers can call 800-606-3807 for information.
