Lead exposure can have serious health consequences, especially for children and pregnant persons. Lead is ubiquitous in the environment, and unfortunately, we cannot see, taste, or smell it. Lead is much more harmful to children and during pregnancy because it can affect a child’s developing nervous system and brain.

On May 2, 2024, Creativity Street Foam Pattern Rollers were recalled because the rollers’ handles contain high levels of lead.

This recall involves Creativity Street Foam Pattern Rollers with model PAC5170, which are intended for children to use when painting. Lot codes “02142080423” and “02142230523” are included in the recall and are printed on the back of the packaging.
