Parents, if you buy Fisher-Price toys for your children, you need to know that more than a million of the company's toys are being recalled.
NewsChannel 11 called Lubbock stores and found that the toys have already been pulled from their shelves. Fisher-Price says the toys may contain lead. The recall includes popular figures like Elmo, Big Bird and Dora the Explorer, all sold in the Hub City over the past 3 months.
Two-year-old Lola loves to play with her toys, but on this day her mother is checking to make sure they're safe after hearing of the toy recall.
"Lola, let's look through your toys," Lola's mother Jessica Myatt said.
Worry immediately set in when NewsChannel 11 alerted the next mother of the recall.
"Oh, my daughter is only 18-months-old and she chews on it," Whitney Pabst said.
Pabst says her daughter was given Birthday Dora about a month ago, just one of over a million toys on the recall list.
"It's disappointing. It is," Pabst said.
Holly Carter, a mother of three adds, "You want to know the toys you are buying are safe for your children, and if they put the item in their mouth or are playing with it you don't have to worry about."
The toys being recalled have a date code on the product or packaging between the numbers of 109-7LF and 187-7LF. If you do have a toy with that lot number, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says to immediately remove the toy from your child's reach.
Which, after Myatt checked all of her daughter's toys, is not the case for Lola.
"Ok Lola, I think it's ok to play with your toys," Myatt said.
Again, the toys being recalled have a date code on the product or packaging between the numbers of 109-7LF and 187-7LF. Those have been sold here in Lubbock since May.
