Totem Badge Recall

No Comments »

The following memo comes from Kahoot, Inc., the toy manufacturer that makes the Cub Scout Immediate Recognition Kit. The recall specifically involves the plastic totem badge included in the kit. Please note that Kahoot asks consumers to secure the plastic totem badge in a safe place away from children. Detailed instructions for returning the product for replacement will be provided when the recall is announced. GNFC has pulled this item from the Scout Shop.

We are requesting anyone who may have purchased the item to remove the Cub Scout Immediate Recognition totem badge from their children(s) possession and, until further instructions are received, keep it in a safe place where only adults will have access to them. Purchasers will be advised by Kahoot as to further action to be taken. Our highest priority is the safety of our youth members and their families. Boy Scouts of America apologizes for any concern this matter causes parents.  BSA is doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of all those who participate in our programs.

From: Kahoot, Inc.

We have been advised that product safety testing for the Cub Scout Immediate Recognition Kit, Item 01804, that we supply to the Boy Scouts of America may contain lead levels in excess of U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission standards in the paint on one component of the kit, the totem badge. In light of this development, we have decided to initiate a voluntary recall of the product and have instructed our counsel to move forward with the voluntary recall without delay.

Pending formalization of the details of the recall, we urge all consumers to remove the Cub Scout Recognition totem badge from the children’s possession and be kept in a safe place where only adults will have access to them. Detailed instructions for returning the product for replacement will be provided when the recall is announced.

We have received no reports of any injuries resulting from use of the kits. Nevertheless, we urge that this action be taken as a precautionary measure, and as a reflection of our commitment -shared by Boy Scouts of America – to sell only products of the highest quality.
