    Issues Recall of Summer Toy Prize

    The Orange Public Library is participating in a nationwide recall on toys due to a high lead content. The bendable toys (shown in photo on City of Orange website: that are stamped Made in China were distributed by libraries across the nation. The Orange Library gave the toys out as prizes during the Summer Reading program for local children.

    The distributor of the toys is located in Indiana. The toys are a bendable dog and cat (roughly 3.75 inches long and are similar in shape to a lollipop). They were found by the Indiana State Department of Health to have 0.4 and 0.24 percent of lead. The maximum safety limit is currently 0.06 percent.

    “We’d like all children and parents to return these toys ASAP to our Taft or El Modena branch libraries for safe disposal,” said library services director Nora Jacob. The Orange Library will replace the toy with another one.
