Liquidation Outlet recalls action figures

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Liquidation Outlet action figures colored with paint containing too much lead.

About 8,400 Force Soldier Playsets, Pirate Expeditions with Parrot and Pirate Expeditions with Treasure toy sets were imported from China by Liquidation Outlet Inc. of Lakewood, Wash.

No illnesses have been attributed to the toys.

The action figure sets were sold at Dollar Stores in Washington and Oregon between September 2007 and this July for $1 apiece.

The Force Soldier sets have SKU No. 70134 printed on the header card. The Pirate Expeditions sets, which include a parrot or a treasury accessory, have SKU No. 70136 printed on the header card.

Because of the lead hazard, consumers were advised take the toys away from children and return them to the retailer for a replacement toy or a refund.

Consumers can call 877-257-5990 for information.
