The BSA Recalls Neckerchief Sliders

Belmont, North Carolina, USA - October 4, 2014: A group of Boy Scouts of America from Troop 62 stands at attention to North Carolina Governor, Pat McCrory during a speech dedicating a statue to honor the Veterans of World War II. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) was founded in 1910 and has 2.7 million youth members.

Has your Scout received a neckerchief slide this year?  Over 100,000 have been found to contain dangerous levels of lead.

The four models that have been recalled are the red wolf, green bear, orange lion and blue Webelos. The P.O. numbers can be found on the white labels attached to the slides and include 200228276, 20023175, 200233281 and 200236630.

There have been no incidents or injuries related to owning the products but exposure to lead can have negative health consequences and prove to be toxic if ingested by young children, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

If your child has received one of these, you are urged to stop using the slides and return them to any Boy Scouts of America retail stores or distributor for a free replacement.
