FUNTASTIC 'Hillbilly Teeth' Recalled

April 10, 2008

FUNTASTIC is recalling about 26,000 sets of "Hillbilly Teeth." The gray surface paint on the teeth contains excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard.

This recall involves a 2-pack fake Hillbilly Teeth with item # 2657. The item number is printed on the packaging. The gums are brown and the teeth are yellow.

The false teeth were sold at grocery, drug, convenience, and mass retailers nationwide from March 2005 through March 2008 for about $2. They were made in China.

Seems that everything is dangerous to our health these days...can't even wear fake hillbilly teeth! I can't take it any more!!

Cath: I wonder if you can't find some vampire teeth made elsewhere that don't contain lead...or cancerous paint...or aren't made out of a plastic that degrades and causes cancer or birth defects. Maybe this is a market nitch we should research and tap into ;}

Swissy: Great idea! I'll see if Terry has an extra set he can loan me.
