Boy Scouts of America recalls neckerchief slides over lead concerns
Attention parents of Boy Scouts, there is a recall on neckerchief slides that could contain lead.
Boy Scouts of America is recalling brass neckerchief slides that were sold in four styles: Red Wolf, Green Bear, Orange Lion and Blue Webelos.
The colored enamel on the neckerchief slides contains levels of lead that exceed the federal lead content ban.
Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.
More than 100,000 neckerchief slides were sold this year at Boy Scouts of America retail stores and authorized distributors nationwide and online for about $6.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled neckerchief slides and return them to any Boy Scouts of America retail store or distributor for a free replacement.
