Children's chairs and swings are being recalled because they have fabric that contains excessive levels of lead. Surge protectors that pose a fire hazard are also among this week's recalled consumer products.

Here's a more detailed look:

CHILDREN'S CHAIRS AND SWINGS

DETAILS: Leisure Ways pink butterfly themed children's camp chairs, moon chairs, and swings. The chair and swings have a metal frame with large red butterfly images and other colorful images on the pink polyester fabric. "Distributed by: Far East Brokers and Consultants, Inc." and "Tracking # November/2015" are printed on the tracking label sewn into the seat of each chair. They were sold at Weis Markets, wholesale distributors, grocery and drug stores nationwide from January 2016 through April 2016.

WHY: The screen-printing on the fabric of the chairs and swings contains excessive levels of lead, which is a violation of the federal lead paint standard.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 6,000.
