MINNEAPOLIS -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with DecoPac based here, has issued a voluntary recall of football bobble head cake decorations. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
About 80,000 of the China-manufactured units have been distributed to date, according to a press release issued by the CPSC, which said surface paint on the body of the bobble head contains lead in excess of the federal lead paint standard. Bakeries and ice cream stores sold the products nationwide from January 2006 through October 2007 with the purchase of a cake or ice cream.
No injuries have been reported from the recall, which includes plastic miniature football bobble heads with green bases only, which were sold for placement on a cake. The bobble heads represented the following teams: Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers, Oakland Raiders, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, and St. Louis Rams.
Football bobble heads with black bases are not included in the recall.
