The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports the tool belt, hammer and suspenders violate the federal standard for lead content in children's toys. The toy goggles and hardhats also do not meet federal toy safety requirements.

About 20,645 of the kits were sold on Amazon.com, Grizzly.com and in Grizzly Industrial’s showrooms nationwide from September 2002 through November 2019 for about $20.

Consumers should contact Grizzly Industrial for instructions on returning the recalled tool kits to receive a full refund including return shipping.
