U.S. says Dollar General recalls 380,000 toy cars

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - About 380,000 Chinese-made toy cars sold at Dollar General retail stores are being recalled because their paint contains unsafe levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Wednesday.

The pull-and-release toy cars were sold from April through October this year for about $1 per pack of two or four cars, the safety agency said in a statement.

Consumers should return the toy cars to any Dollar General store for a refund, it said.

Dollar General was acquired in July 2007 by an investment group that included affiliates of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co, GS Capital Partners and Citi Private Equity.
