Smith toy recalled in US

Thursday, March 9th, 2000 - 7:28 pm PST

The recently released Rev. Brendan Powell Smith action figure which features a head that shoots across the room has been recalled by the manufacturer today after numerous consumer complaints caused many retailers like Wal-Mart and Target stores to refuse to carry it. The head-firing toy has become an instant collector’s item and is quickly selling out at stores in Europe and Asia where it is still available.
