Nerf Recalls Two Super Soakers due to Lead.
Nerf has recalled two of their Super Soakers for a lead contamination.
Super Soaker XP 20 and Super Soaker XP 30 are the two Super Soakers that have been recalled at this time.
The lead was found on the stickers adhered to the Super Soakers. The amount of lead found is more than the U.S. allows in products.
The manufacturer, Nerf, says the stickers were outsourced by a third-party who is an unauthorized supplier. When they became aware of the lead situation, they began an investigation to take precautionary measures.
The Super Soakers were sold in the U.S. exclusively at Target from March to July 2020 for about $7.99 (XP 20) and $12.99 (XP 30).
Lead is a highly toxic metal and a strong poison. Lead poisoning is serious and sometimes fatal.
Children get lead in their bodies by putting lead-containing objects in their mouths. Touching the lead and then putting their fingers in their mouths may also poison them. Lead is more harmful to children because their brains and nervous systems are still developing.
