From the Consumer Reports Safety Blog: The manufacturer of 1.6 million kits issued to Cub Scouts over the past seven years has recalled a recognition badge because it contains high levels of lead, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The badge was sold at Boy Scouts of America retail outlets nationwide from January 2000 through September 2007.
