Winne-The-Pooh Playsets Are Contaminated With Lead, Not Honey

Winnie-the-Pooh is the latest character to fall victim to the lead toy contamination epidemic, according to the CPSC, which recalled the playsets yesterday.

The 49,000 playsets were imported and sold by J.C. Penney through their catalog and website. Consumers who purchased the lead tainted item can return it to any J.C. Penney store for a full refund.

Could this be the work of a heffalump?

J.C. Penney also recalled some art sets and ornaments also tainted with lead.
