The recall has been issued for the Lil Anglers Recalls Children's Fishing Rods Sold with Kid Casters No Tangle Combos. These fishing pole combos are being recalled because the fishing rods contain levels of lead that exceed the federal lead content ban.

Lead can be very toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.

The recall was issued on April 20th and affects over 80,000 units of this fishing pole combo that were sold in-store and online.

The products affected by this safety recall were manufactured between 2021 and March 2023 and were sold at various retailers and online at Amazon and Lil Anglers. The products were sold nationwide and in Canada.
