Classic Concepts is recalling its Aman Trunks because the surface coating paint on the interior metal chains contains excessive levels of lead, a violation of the federal lead paint standard.
The sides have a natural finish with a deep red painted front panel that is surrounded by decorative metal trim with a metal plate for securing a padlock. There are chains on the interior to keep the hinged dark wood lid attached to the trunk body. The sides of the trunk have metal handles for lifting. The trunk stands on four carved wooden feet.
No injuries were reported to date. Consumers should immediately stop using the trunks and contact Cost Plus World Market for a free replacement of lead-compliant chains. Cost Plus World Market stores nationwide and online at www.worldmarket.com from August 2013 to November 2013 for about $300.
