Classic Concepts Recalls Trunks Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard

Classic Concepts has issued a recall of Aman trunks, sold exclusively at Cost Plus World Market, because the surface coating paint on the interior metal chains contain lead in excess of the federal lead paint standard.

The wooden storage trunk measures 38 inches wide by 18 inches high by 18 inches deep and stands on four carved wooden feet, with metal handles on the sides for lifting.  The sides have a natural finish with a painted red front panel surrounded by decorative metal trim, with a metal plate for a padlock.  Chains on the interior keep the led attached to the body.  A sticker on the bottom of the trunk bears the UPC code 24441018 and one of the following PO numbers: 200450992, 200450994, 200450995, 400450998 or 400450999.  They were sold at Cost Plus World Market from August 2013 to November 2013.

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the product and contact Cost Plus World Market for a free replacement of the chains.  Call Cost Plus at toll-free at (877) 967-5362 between 7 a.m. and midnight ET daily or visit the firm’s website
