WASHINGTON -- Elegant Gifts Mart Inc. has issued a recall for approximately 1,600 chairs and 1,300 stools that violate the federal lead standard.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said the yellow surface paint on the metal frame of the folding  chairs and stools contains excessive levels of lead.

Elegant Gifts Mart of Los Angeles, CA, imported the chairs and stools from China. The products were sold for about $6 exclusively at 1 to Seven stores in Puerto Rico from September 2010 through June 2011. Consumers are encouraged to return the recalled items for a full refund.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.
