(KSL News) -- Before your children draw pictures using sidewalk chalk, check the package. Target is recalling 26-thousand packages of sidewalk chalk because they might be poisonous.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the multi-colored sidewalk chalk showed high levels of lead in recent tests.

The five-piece chalk set labeled "Double Dipp'n Fun" comes in a triagular shape and has multi-layers of green, yellow, red or blue.

You can return the chalk to any Target store for a refund.
