848,000 Chinese-made toys... excessive amounts of lead paint.... sound familiar?
From Barbie accessory toys (manufactured between 9/30/06 and 8/20/07) to Fisher Price Big Big World 6-in-1 Bongo Band toys (sold nationwide from July-Aug 2007) the latest Chinese-made toy recall is Mattel's third in a month. THIRD. IN. A. MONTH!
Lead can cause brain damage when ingested by young children. Under current regulations, children's products found to have more than .06 percent lead accessible to users are subject to a recall.
Please toy makers, get your sh*t together. We're getting pretty tired of pulling toys out of tiny yet freakishly strong fingers.
