Units: About 80
Importer: MTD Products Inc, of Valley City, Ohio (Troy-Bilt is an MTD brand.)
Hazard: The stamp-painted logo on the backside of the gardening gloves contains high levels of lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.
Incidents/Injuries: None reported.
Description: The Budding Gardener Complete Gardening Set included a wheel barrel, sprinkling can, pair of gardening gloves, hand tools and seeds. The gloves are yellow on one side and white with rubber dots on the other side. The gloves have a picture of four children in a field, with “The Budding Gardners” written in red around the picture.
Sold by: The Troy-Bilt Web site, www.troybilt.com, from February 2006 through January 2007 for about $50 for the set.
