White House calls postage stamps unsafe


WASHINGTON - A series of  U.S. postage stamps may never be used because White House officials have deemed them unsafe.

The stamps show children participating in a variety of physical activities. The "Just Move" stamps are designed to promote first lady Micelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign.

Officials from the President's Council on Fitness decided at least three of the 15 stamps should not be issued.

They include a child doing a cannonball into a pool, a child doing a handstand and a skateboarder.

A spokesman tells ABC News the collection is on hold and a decision will be made at a later date.

The stamp snafu leaves the financially struggling postal service with stacks of stamps.

Channel 2 Action News is speaking with the congressman who is head of the Postal Service oversight committee who is now investigating.

Hear from him on Channel 2 Action News at 6.
