Thomas and Friends wooden railway recall!!!

ack! link The trick will be figuring out if we have any of the pieces that have lead-containing paint... I think most, if not all, of our train set was purchased before the manufacture years in question.

edit: It does appear that I will be returning our red sodor line caboose for a replacement. It was purchased in 2005, and has no identifying marks anywhere other than the wheels say copyright 2003. Here is their email response to my questions:


You can not really look at the wheels on the trains to be safe.

If your item was purchased between January 2005 and April 2007 you can return it for a replacement. If you don’t know the date it was purchased, and it does not have a code containing “WJ” or “AZ” on the bottom of your product, you can go ahead and return it for a replacement.

Please visit our web site at To access the wooden vehicle & set components recall page, click in the “current recalls” section. You can then download the return form and guidelines. Please complete that form and include it with your returned product to this address:
