Consumer Reports News: January 24, 2012 04:38 PM

Lee Carter Company, of San Francisco, Calif., has recalled about 7,000 packs of its Super Luchamania Action Figures, due to excessive levels of lead paint, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported today.

The surface paints on the action figures contain excessive levels of lead, which is prohibited under federal law. No incidents or injuries have been reported in relation to this recall.

Sold for $12 to $14 per packet at various specialty craft stores nationwide from June 2000 through October 2011, the recalled action figures were manufactured in Mexico.

The recalled Mexican wrestling Super Luchamania action figures were sold in packs of 12. The multi-colored action figures are plastic, have plastic capes and measure about 4-inches tall. "Super Luchamania" is printed on the action figures' packaging.


Consumers should immediately take the recalled action figures away from children and return them to Lee Carter Company for a full refund or credit towards a replacement product.
