It’s been one hell of a morning for RC2. The manufacturer of the infamous lead-tainted Thomas & Friends toys is recalling a feeding chair that 12 kids have managed to use as a launch platform and a “Winnie-the-Pooh” potty-training chair that’s tainted with lead. Funnily enough, only the orange paint used on the “Winne-the-Pooh” plaque is tainted.
RC2 is asking that you stop using the feeding chair and contact them to request new straps that will prevent your tiny bundle of joy from experiencing sudden deceleration on the kitchen floor. Those of you with the lead tainted potty-training chair should stop using the chair until you (no, we’re not making this up) “contact RC2 to receive a permanent clear protective cover that covers the plaque.”
No refunds or replacement products are being offered.
