About 14,000 ladybug-themed kids’ outdoor furniture has been recalled by Far East Brokers due to violation of lead paint standards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Why the product is being recalled: The red surface paint on the Leisure Ways® Brands Kids Outdoor Furniture contains excessive levels of lead, a violation of the federal lead paint standard.

Description: The recall involves red ladybug-themed kids’ metal-framed outdoor furniture sold under the Leisure Ways brand. The recalled items have large ladybug images on the fabric and include a camp chair, folding chair, moon chair, double-seat swing chair and patio set that includes two chairs, a table and an umbrella. 

A tracking label sewn into the seat of each chair includes the production date “December/2012” and the words, “Distributed by:  Far East Brokers and Consultants, Inc.”

Where it was sold: The furniture was sold at Weis Markets, wholesale distributors, grocery and drug stores nationwide from January 2013 to May 2013 for between $10 and $50, depending on the item.
