About 60,000 children's desktop lamps made in Hong Kong are being recalled in the US, because the surface paint on the lamps contains excessive levels of lead. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission warned children could be poisoned if they ingested the paint on the Tinker Bell lamps, made by New York-based Kash N'Gold. Hong Kong customs said it had noted the recall and was studying the matter. The lamps were sold for US$40 each in the United States between January and October. No incident concerning the lamps has been reported.
