Wal-Mart stores sold "Aloha Breeze" electric heaters from July 2005 to July 2007.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the heaters can melt, sending out smoke or start a fire.

The recalled model number is 05226.

Aloha Housewares will replace the heater.

Call (80) 295-4448 or email the company at ahitexaslg@aol.com.

Also, Toys R Us sold Imaginarium Wooden Coloring Cases.

The ink used on the printing on the outside package contains lead.

The CPSC also says the black watercolor paint inside also has excessive levels of lead.

Lead is toxic in young children.

The cases were sold from October 2006 through August 2007.

They included crayons, colored pencils, fiber pens, paintbrush, water colors, palette, white paint, ruler and pencil sharpener.

Take the case and products away from children and return to Toys R Us for a store credit.

You can contact the store at (800) 869-7787 or vist the website www.toysrus.com.
