The White House is working to limit a potential PR crisis linked to the First Lady's Let's Move campaign.

The postal service was just getting ready to release a series of stamps encouraging kids to keep active but it decided to hold out on the stamps out of fear the agency could be blamed if kids hurt themselves.

None of the children featured in the stamps are wearing any type of safety or protective gear. You see a skateboarder not wearing kneepads and a skateboarder not wearing a helmet.

The stamp series is supposed to be destroyed but a final decision won't be made until sometime next year.
