- Excessive amounts of lead paint on toys and other children's products led the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue a recall of more than 300,000 Chinese-made items on Wednesday. The recall includes about 250,000 SpongeBob SquarePants address books and journals because they may have excessive levels of lead paint on their metal spiral bindings. President Bush held onto his SpongeBob address book as his wife went to take it off him. Only after much coaxing and the promise of a new one did he let go of his end.
