Lead paint leads to lacrosse glove recall

Health Canada has issued a recall of Brine VIP lacrosse gloves because a logo on the gloves contains lead paint levels in excess of the allowable limit.

Lead paint has turned up in a lot of consumer products, but finding it in lacrosse gloves is a new twist.

The gloves come in three sizes, 10, 12 and 13 inches and have model numbers LGLVIP00WH, LGLVIP02WH, and LGLVIP03WH.

The gloves were manufactured in Vietnam and sold in Ontario between July 2009 and July 2010.

They cost about $50 a pair.

Only about 30 pairs were sold in Canada, while 7,000 sets were sold in the U.S.

Exposure to lead can cause serious health effects, especially in children.
