Toy Recalls

Toys "R" Us is recalling about 128,700 of its "Elite Operations" Toy Sets in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The toy sets contain high levels of lead in the paint, which is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. Also, the toys have sharp points, which pose a laceration hazard.

This recall affects three styles of "Elite Operations" toy sets. The military-style play sets contain light and sound vehicles, action figures, and accessories. Models included in this recall are: Super Rigs Transport Vehicle (Item # 087286), Command Patrol Center (Item # 920625) and Troop Carrier (Item # 773967). The item numbers are located on the back of the packaging above the barcode. Toy sets sold prior to January 2006 are not included in this recall. No other "Elite Operations" brand toys are affected by this recall.
