The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Giftco, Inc. have issued a recall of a set of Harry Potter bookends, for containing levels of lead in their paint that violate the federal lead paint standard.

About 36,000 unites of the bookends exist; they include bookends molded to look like Harry, Hermione, Hedwig and Crookshanks. They were sold at elementary school fundraisers, discount and dollar stores from June 2004 through January 2006, for between $3 and $38. If you have one of these items, call Giftco Inc. at (888) 448-6728 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. central time Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s web site. You can see pictures of two of the items on the recall page.

Guess That Book
