StyleMark Inc. is recalling 144,000 children's sunglasses with Main Street Drag characters because orange paint on the temples of the sunglasses has excessive levels of lead, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. They were made in China.
Here's how the CPSC described the sunglasses:
"The recalled children's sunglasses have Main Street Drag characters on the bottom of one lens. The sunglass frames have dark metallic blue or dark metallic red fronts and gray checkered sides. 'Main Street Drag' is printed in orange at the temples. Style number DI25K7116 is printed on the left temple. No other styles are included in this recall."
The sunglasses were sold at Payless, Walgreen's, Academy Sports and CVS stores nationwide from October 2007 through March 2008 for between $6 and $9.
StyleMark will replace the sunglasses with a new pair. For information, call (866) 928-1913 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or go to stylemark.net.
