ATTN Cub Scout Parents: BSA Neckerchief Slide Recall

posted by Mary Booth - 

Attention, parents of Cub scouts...

Thousands of Cub Scout neckerchief slides are being recalled due to concerns about lead content.  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall yesterday saying there's too much of the element in slide's colored enamel.  

Parents should return the slides, which were all bought this year, to a Scout store. 

The recall includes the orange Lion, red Wolf, green Bear and blue Webelos slides.  The Tiger slide is not involved in the recall. Neither are Boy Scout neckerchief slides or any neckerchief slide sold before February 2018.
