In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), RC2 Corp. announced a second voluntary toy recall of Thomas & Friends Wood Railroad Toys due to excessive levels of lead.

The latest toy recall includes approximately 200,000 toys. In June, 1.5 million Thomas & Friends toys recalled for the same reason, excessive levels of lead in the paint.

The latest recall includes five toys from the Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway toy line: toad vehicle, olive green sodor cargo box, all-black cargo car and all-green maple tree top and signal base accessories.

The front packaging label has “Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway” in the top corner. A tracking code can be found on the bottom of some of the toys. Toys that are marked with the codes “WJ” and “AZ” are NOT included in this recall.

Consumers are advised to take the recalled toys away from small children immediately and return them to RC2 Corp for a free replacement.
