    Character Lapel Pin Recall Information

    The following information applies to certain character lapel pins sold at Nintendo's two company-owned and operated stores, and given away as promotional items to business associates who are employed by retailers where Nintendo products are sold. The lapel pins that are the subject of the recall feature specific Nintendo characters and measure approximately 1/2 inch to 2 inches per side. Nintendo is recalling the pins, which it purchased from an outside supplier, because they contain lead in excess of levels permitted by U.S. government regulations concerning toys and children's products.

    Nintendo began selling and distributing these pins in April 2004, and stopped selling and distributing them in November 2007.

    THESE LAPEL PINS WERE SOLD ONLY AT THE TWO STORES LISTED BELOW. NO OTHER RETAIL STORE EVER SOLD THESE LAPEL PINS. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT OTHER RETAILERS WITH QUESTIONS CONCERNING THESE LAPEL PINS.
    Nintendo "Fun & Games" employee store
    4820 150th Ave NE
    Redmond, WA 98052

    Nintendo World Store
    10 Rockefeller Plaza
    New York, NY

    To determine whether you might have a pin subject to this recall, please click here.

    In the event that you received one or more of the recalled pins, Nintendo is offering to replace them free of charge with a replacement lapel pin with a different character. Please call toll-free at (800) 431-0971 to arrange for replacements. Nintendo will mail you a postage-paid envelope that you can use to send your lapel pin(s) to Nintendo. After Nintendo receives your package, you will receive a confirmation email from Nintendo with information on your replacement pin.

    It seems they were selling the pins at Nintendo World.

    Kids buy from Nintendo World all the time.

    Old news.

    I read about this months ago. Probably because I live like five minutes from the Redmond store.

    The day I wear a lapel pin is the day I invite everyone to cordially whoop my ass.

    I wondered why my brain functions seemed to have slowed over the last two years. I have DK, Mario, Peach and Samus. I've never worn them on my lapel though.
