NY seeks federal recall of toy sold at Dollar Tree

New York officials are asking the federal government to seek a recall of a foam dart toy they say could be dangerous to children.

The Division of Consumer Protection says "Clingy Darts," sold at Dollar Tree stores, contains more than six times the federally allowed limit on a chemical known as DEHP.

The National Toxicology Program said Monday that DEHP, which is used to soften plastic, is a reproductive and developmental toxin in animals that could have health implications for infants and toddlers.

Cuomo said owners of the plastic darts should dispose of the toy in the trash and that Dollar Tree voluntarily pull the product off the shelves.

Greenbrier International Inc. of Chesapeake, Va., which imports the darts, didn't initially return calls seeking comment.
