Captain Cutlass Pirate Pistol Toys are being recalled due to their surface paints containing levels of lead that exceed federal safety standards.  The toys were sold at Halloween and specialty stores nationwide from April 2008 through May 2012.  Consumers are advised to stop using the product and contact Dillon Importing for instructions on returning the product for a full refund.

Manufacturers, distributors, or retailers that discover that a product contains a defect that poses a substantial hazard to costumers are required to immediately inform the Consumer Product Safety Commission, who may then mandate a recall or other action.  Interested persons who discover such a defect also have the right to enforce a Consumer Product Safety rule or order, by providing the alleged violating company with a notice that its products are in violation.  The Chanler Group is willing to represent such interested persons.
