Descripción del Defecto: Children's Chairs Recalled by Dellano's Mexican Products NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   February 11, 1987   Release # 87-009 Dellano's Mexican Products Co., Inc. Recalls Children's Chairs WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, De Llano's Mexican Products Co., Inc., Laredo, Texas, today announced a voluntary recall of children's chairs which have excess lead in the paint. The paint on the chairs contains levels of lead as high as 1.15% and may present a lead poisoning hazard. No more than 0.06% is allowed by CPSC requirements. Neither the CPSC nor De Llano's Mexican Products Co. knows of any lead poisoning incidents associated with these chairs. Officials in the Springfield, Missouri, Department of Health brought this lead in paint violation to the attention of the CPSC. The children's chairs, which were imported from Mexico, are made of wood, painted red, with straw seats. Multi-colored flowers also are painted on the chairs. More that 9,000 chairs were distributed in Texas, Missouri and Arizona in 1985. The chairs sold for approximately $1.50. Consumers should remove these chairs from use by children and return them to the store where they were purchased for a complete refund.
