Undated -- Connecticut state officials have ordered a recall of a popular toy.

They say fingerprint dust in the "CSI Fingerprint Examination Kit" contains asbestos.

So far, Connecticut is the only state to recall the product. The state is sending its information to the Consumer Product Safety Commission in Washington.

Asbestos is a building material that can cause long-term health problems, including abdominal cancers and lung disease.
