The Boy Scouts of America is recalling neckerchief slides sold this year because they contain high levels of lead.

The Scouts posted a release Thursday that detailed the recall, and it pointed to a Consumer Product Safety Commission bulletin that claimed the "colored enamel on the neckerchief slides contains levels of lead that exceed the federal lead standard."

The recalled products are linked via four PO numbers, which the Scouts said are visible on the slides.

"Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled neckerchief slides, take them away from children and return them to any Boy Scouts of America retail store or distributor for a free replacement neckerchief slide, including shipping," the government bulletin reads.

No injuries or incidents related to the high lead content in the accessories have been reported.

In June, it was reported that a Boy Scout's toy hand grenade caused a security scare at Houston's William P. Hobby Airport.
