Thomas the Tank and Friends Kids Toy is Being Recalled

We have some bad news for the tiny fans of Thomas the Tank Engine.

Unfortunately, experts are ordering that "Thomas the Tank & Friends" toys be pulled off the shelf due to concerns about lead paint.

At least one-million of the kiddie toys are affected as lead paint can be poisonous.

The recall affects nearly four percent of all Thomas and Friends Railway toys sold throughout the country.

There is some good news, there have not been any reports of illnesses or injuries so far.

    I am trying to find out which trains were recalled. My son has dozens of them. I missed the broadcast and I would greatly appreciate the information. I hope that you can help. Thank you. Dewey
