Statement on Voluntary Withdrawal of Realistic Animals Toy Sets

Bentonville, AR, Oct. 19, 2007 – As a result of its Toy Safety Net program, Wal-Mart announced today the voluntary withdrawal of a realistic animals toy set assortment after its independent testing revealed excessive levels of lead in the base material, not the surface coating.

Wal-Mart shared its test results with the supplier and with the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) and promptly directed stores to remove these sets from shelves and placed a register block on these items.

Wal-Mart customers may return the product to any Wal-Mart store, with or without a receipt, for a full refund.

The items in this voluntary withdrawal include:
