Dixon Ticonderoga Announces Voluntary Recall of Creativity Street® Foam Pattern Rollers

May 2, 2024


Appleton, Wisconsin – Dixon Ticonderoga Company, the owner of the brand Creativity Street®, is initiating a voluntary recall of all PAC5170 Creativity Street® Foam Pattern Rollers. During internal testing of a sample of the Foam Pattern Rollers, some of the rollers were found to have lead in excess of the federal lead content ban.


The high lead levels are isolated to two lot codes. Dixon Ticonderoga has worked with its suppler to ensure that future production complies with lead standards. They received the Foam Pattern Rollers with the lot codes “02142080423” and “02142230523” printed on the back. Foam Pattern Rollers that are impacted by this recall were delivered and sold to customers AFTER September 26, 2023.
