Knoxville (WVLT) – There are four new recalls to pass along.

The first involves about one million pink and orange glow sticks that were given away with at Dunkin Donuts locations across the nation between September 2007 and October 2007.

The sticks are not labeled correctly, failing to point out that they can pose a choking hazard and the lanyard they are attacked to can cause strangulation to young children.

If you have one, you are advised to immediately take it away from young children and return them to any Dunkin' Donuts for a free donut.

The next recall involves about 5,400 Tabletop Puppet Theaters manufactured by Guidecraft Inc.

They were sold between at specialty toy stores, gift shops, catalogs and Web sites nationwide from June 2006 through August 2007.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the theaters wooden panels contain excessive levels of lead which violate the federal lead paint standard.

If you have one, you should immediately take the recalled puppet theaters away from children and contact Guidecraft to receive a replacement theater or another product of equal value.

About 200,000 Cool Clip and Mini Cool Clip Bookmarks are also being recalled for violating the federal lead paint standard.

The recall involves various designs of the bookmarks sold by Antioch Publishing in stores nationwide from April 2003 through October 2007.

Apparently the paint on the clip of the bookmarks contains excessive levels of lead.

If you own one of the bookmarks, take it away from children and contact Antioch Publishing for a refund.

And finally, R.L. Albert & Son’s is recalling 55,000 Skull Pails Filled with Halloween Candy Mix.

According to the CPSC, the surface paint on the pails eyes, nose and teeth contain excessive levels of lead, also violating the federal lead paint standard.
