WASHINGTON, April 10 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of about 26,000 packages of Chinese-made "Hillbilly Teeth" due to a health hazard.

The CPSC said the importer, Funtastic of Houston, initiated the recall because gray surface paint on the teeth was found to contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard.

What's especially worse about this is it is something specifically designed to be put in your mouth, so the lead is going to get in your body much easier than if it was something else. I would strongly advise not to put anything made in China into your mouth...

Yeah, seriously.
Especially something with paint on them like those had.
China & paint + in the mouth = not a good idea.

Does anyone have a link to a picture of the product? I wonder how much of this grey coating is actually on the teeth. Do any articles actually list the PPM of lead that was found in the paint? I wonder how the teeth got to production level and shipped out before this was caught because most companies are testing coatings and paints at preproduction levels nowadays because of reasons like this.

Heh, not in China. Have you been paying attention to the news for the past year?
