Hasbro is voluntarily recalling 52,900 Nerf Super Soaker water guns sold mainly at Target. Some reports say the items were also sold via toy retailers, including Argos and Amazon. Hasbro is urging consumers to stop using them immediately.
Stickers on the toys’ water tank may “contain levels of lead in the ink that exceed the federal lead content ban,” according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the affected product and contact the company for instructions on how to return the product and receive a full refund,” the recall notice said. “Consumers will be asked to unscrew the tank from the blaster and return the tank to the manufacturer using a postage prepaid label, for a full refund.”Hasbro’s website (www.hasbro.com)
The water guns were sold between March and July 2020. The two models included are:
- Super Soaker XP 20, a green and orange hand-held water blaster (retail price of about $7.99),
- Super Soaker XP30 is an orange and blue water gun (sold for about $12.99).
