I heard about this too...our Thamas stuff is way older than 2005 so were ok. I really can't believe that lead based paint was used...sheesh! I need to get a hold of my neighbor....her son is very young and has a ton of Thomas stuff...

It is scary how many places lead paint turns up. My 3 year old loves cheap costume jewelry and glitzy baubles but I am afraid to let her play with those types of things because of all the recalls.

There are products being sold everywhere [internet.classifieds,garage sales, etc.] that do not conform to safety standards!!!
I was constantly searching websites to make myself aware!!!
That was until I joined!!!
They alert me daily about recalls worldwide. No longer must I sit at my screen for hours.
Although you may think CPSC, NHTSA, etc. has you covered, nothing could be farther from the truth.
Not only do they make you aware of daily recalls, they offer 1 on 1 service, for hard to find recalls...
For the month of July, would like you to compare our weekly list, to what you can remember hearing about...Use ''preview'' as username and password to see recent recalls...
Not only do they cover consumer products, vehicles, atv's, etc. but also food, drugs,etc...
