Probably belongs in The Rink, but who is licking their stick? Well, you know, besides after a sick nasty goal.

This is stupid.. I mean who chews on the Sticks so that the lead paint would even be a health risk? I mean it's not like Mecury. As long as you don't ingest it it is not a problem.

Recalled? What a surprise! Didn't a bunch of childrens toys manufactured in China get recalled last year for the same reason?

So do you return them to the store where purchased and get a new lead filled X60?

Sigh well, this is embarassing....

Low production costs = higher percentage for errors

If somehow most production was moved to say, India, then you'd be saying that against them.

You guys never had hockey stick eating contests after the game?

I think the concern is using the stick with their bare hands, then licking their hands?

I also found this interesting .... taken from this article http://www.parentcentral.ca/parent/f...d-paint-recall . I wanted to post this because almost every article was from a canadian source and not an American one.

Quote:
On Wednesday, the company issued a “stop sale” notice for those models to all of their retail outlets, triggering an automatic recall in Canada.

Davis said some of the sticks under recall actually meet Canadian standards, but Bauer uses the more stringent U.S. lead-content requirements as their minimum.

“Anything that didn’t pass in the U.S. is on this stop-sale notice globally.”

Davis expects recalls to follow elsewhere in the world over the next few weeks.
