Axiom International has recalled about 5,300 children's sunglasses. Surface paint on the sunglasses can contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard.
The two-tone sunglasses come in Spiderweb Blue and Spiderweb Red with a spider web etched in between the eyes and "Made in China" engraved on the right-hand side of the frame. The glasses were made in China and sold at party stores, discount dollar stores, and hardware stores nationwide from May 2007 through August 2008 for between $1 and $5.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled sunglasses away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. For more information, contact Axiom at (800) 262-0599 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site at www.axiomintl.com
