Target to pay $600,000 for a lead paint violation

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has alleged that Target knowingly imported and sold various toys -including Anima and Sunny Patch Chairs- with federally prohibited levels of lead paint.

CPSC has provisionally accepted a $600,000 penalty settlement, noting that retailers and importers will be held to the same standards as manufacturers.

Target has voluntarily recalled the toys and denies all allegations of lawful misconduct.
