Buzz’s Boatyard Toy Boats Recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Buzz's Boatyard toy boats due to a violation of lead paint standards.

About 200 of the toy boats, imported from India by Buzz's Boatyard of New Smyrna Beach, Fla., were sold through the company's Web site between April 2007 and November 2007 for between $3 and $12 apiece, the commission said in a statement.

The recalled toys are tin Pop Pop boats, including the 13-inch "Titanic" and "Hut" models.

Consumers were advised to take the recalled toys away from children and contact Buzz's Boatyard for a refund or an exchange.

Consumers can call 877-207-1923 for information.
